Royal British Legion

Tidings, July-August 2019

The branch continues to be represented at Norfolk events, and the May National Arboretum visit went well. Apart from our local Monte Cassino veteran, Charlie Coleman, we also were proud to include a King’s Lynn veteran, Cyril Route.

Did you know that, under the Armed Forces Covenant agreed by the government, the NHS is obligated to treat anyone who has served in the armed forces with special consideration, no matter how long ago or how recent that service was, or indeed where it was, male or female. The view now is that military service could have a direct bearing on health in later life and this needs to be recognised. The Legion is asking that, if this applies to you, tell your health practitioner or local surgery without delay.

The next branch meetings are on Tuesdays 16th July, 20th August and 17th September, 7.30pm at the King’s Head Loddon. Branch Secretary Colin Hartley 01508 521136 can be contacted for Legion help and advice.
