Clarification on Forces Day

Share this article

WITH reference to the letter (Citizen August 24) from Terence Shad concerning Forces Day.

Normally, Veterans’ Day is organised by Fenland Council. No-one would expect every veteran in the area to be guests of the Royal Naval Association. Last year, the veterans all met at Fenland Hall then went to church and then attended a light buffet and those that didn’t have a veterans’ badge were presented with them.

I hope Mr Shad doesn’t think I was criticising the RN Association or any other organisation.

All I said in my letter was other towns had organised parades and this year our area didn’t. Why?

In no way was this association responsible for that.
