Remembrance

It is often said that there are ‘too many’ charities for those who have been in the armed Services. Certainly, around Remembrance Sunday, one is contacted by plenty of them, all wishing to make the connection – although the Royal British Legion seems to come out as the winner. It appears that it is compulsory for anybody appearing on BBC television to wear a poppy – and perhaps the BBC conveniently lends poppies to those who have not come prepared!

Much of the general raising of awareness and funds seems to concentrate on troops on the ground, and I feel that those who served on the high seas or in the air do not get enough recognition – although, of course, they have been included in the display of ceramic poppies at the Tower of London (that was a great idea).

I just wish there was more information 0n where the money goes. And so I was pleased in idly chatting to a lady recently to hear that when her ex-RAF husband died, a representative from one of the Air Force charities said that the charity would pay for his funeral and give her a mobility scooter.

Local representatives, I am sure, do a great job across the country – but we seldom hear about them. I would like to see more local publicity (as there is for many non-Service charities). Because, as always, there more one knows, the more likely it is that one will add a little extra generosity to a donation.
