Thank A Veteran This Remembrance Day

An item from the There But Not There organization.

Thank A Veteran

Every year, as we remember the anniversary of the end of the First World War, we think of those who have given their lives in service to their country.

This year, we want to also thank those who have fought in more recent conflicts around the globe.

Throughout our campaign, we have worked with Royal British Legion Industries (RBLI) who have packaged and posted our Tommies. We will donate your Tommy to a veteran who has worked on the campaign, as a thank you for their service.

If you would like your own Tommy as a mark of Remembrance in your home, or to give as a gift this Christmas, you can still purchase them on our website: 10″ Tommies.

Thank A Veteran Today
The Queen visits RBLI
On 6th November, Her Majesty The Queen visited RBLI to officially open Appleton Lodge, RBLI’s new luxury care facility for veterans and their families. The building has been named after First World War Sister Edith Appleton OBE, who was awarded the Royal Red Cross for nursing on the front line during the Great War.

The care home is part of a new development which, when complete, will provide crucial homes, welfare support and create a community for the country’s most vulnerable veterans.

To commemorate her visit and the beginning of the next phase of the Centenary Village, The Queen laid a time capsule containing, amongst other items, 10 stories of veterans and their families living in RBLI’s existing village and a handwritten letter for future residents from the charity’s chief executive Brigadier Steve Sherry CMG OBE.

The Queen also included a letter which said:

“I wish to congratulate Royal British Legion Industries on their Centenary, and their support of veterans over the past 100 years. Today is a moment of celebration, but also a time of reflection on the sacrifices the Armed Forces make in times of need. I send my warmest best wishes to RBLI and all who support them.”
