Only 1 Month until VE Day, who’s ready? 🎉

An item from the organization formerly known as There But Not There.


Only one Month to go until VE Day; Get Ready!

We can help you celebrate!

It is safe to say that all of us at RBLI have been completely overwhelmed with the national support behind the launch of our VE Day 2021 efforts.

With one month to go until the big day, it is clear to see that the nation is preparing to celebrate in style. In the short time since our VE Day products were launched, we have already had thousands of orders from the RBLI Shop.

This huge support means that RBLI can continue to provide life-changing help and employment to veterans and those with disabilities.

One thing is for certain, this year’s VE Day will be one to remember!

NEW Special Edition VE Day 2021 Tankard

Art of the war horse 

Story by Stephen J. Thorne

Mercifully, the First World War was the last major confrontation in which horses played a major role.

British cavalry were among the first units to see action in WW I, but they didn’t last. The war’s most impactful weapon—the machine gun—along with the mud and barbed wire of trench warfare would ultimately spell the end for equine-borne military.

Witnessing genocide

Story by Sharon Adams

In late 1993, Canadian General Roméo Dallaire was tasked to head a force of 2,500 United Nations peacekeepers sent to Rwanda to help implement a peace accord to end three years of civil war between the Hutus and Tutsis, a minority ethnic group.

The mission was a disaster.
