Thing is, if the money actually went to veterans of the Second World War and their widows, I would give £100 every year. But it doesn't, it pays the pension of the men who fought so Thatcher could have the Falklands and who gunned down innocent civilians and children in Ireland, Iraq and Afghanistan.

Don't talk to me like I'm an idiot. Of course I know that. And I am aware that there are individuals in the army who are "heroes". But I don't believe that most people in the army join for this reason: "to save civillian lives and want to make a difference." And I don't believe that you believe that either tbh.And Samiad, I don't understand - are you deliberately being ignorant? If you don't believe me, then look it up yourself - you're on the internet.

Bill served in the RAF during the Second World War, and was involved in clandestine operations behind the lines on D-Day. Now, however, over 60 years on, Bill suffers from tinnitus and deafness, which he feels is as a result of his time in the Services. Back in 1994, we helped him to get the War Pension he really deserved, and also got him a hearing aid. The local Legion welfare worker even went with him to get it fitted. More recently, Bill's wife has sadly been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, and he was finding it really hard to take care of her. Luckily, we were able to help him find the best place for her to be taken care of. Bill says now, "Without the Legion I do not know what I would have done when my wife fell ill. The Legion made all the difference at a very difficult time".

its common sense really, with the ww2 dying out from old age, naturally all the money will start going onto the more recent wars.

The majority of the people that went to fight in Iraq believed that they were there to stop a dictator who possibly had weapons of mass destruction. Often soldiers are lied to but that is not their fault. Aim your anger towards the government. Not at the soldiers.When a civilian gets injured the allied hospitality response is ASAP. The job they do out there is fantastic. I can spare some money for an 18 year old british soldier that gets their legs blown off by a mine.I can understand your point about Ireland considering you are Irish or whatever. I had an uncle in the British army that left during that period because he thought what he was fighting for was bullshit. But I diagree about the point regarding the soldiers that went to Iraq and Afghanistan.

C/S. Soldiers are nothing more than pawns.
