(Still working on the name …)
Purpose. As the 75th celebrations and commemorations of both VE & VJ Day have been denied from our veterans The Not Forgotten aims to send up to 5,000 goody boxes to those who served in the Royal Navy, Army, Royal Air Force and Merchant Navy during World War Two. The Goody Boxes should be ready during October 2020.
This is a gift without catches from the Not Forgotten. Having just celebrated our 100thanniversary The Not Forgotten wishes to do something special for all our WW2 veterans during the extended pandemic. The aim is to bring them a bit of cheer to and thank WW2 veterans for their service and the wonderful generation they represent.
Any veteran of the RN, Army, RAF and MN who served during WW2 (1939 – 1945) and who lives in the UK is eligible to receive the gift. This includes those who served in the Commonwealth Armed Forces in support of Britain’s war effort.
In order to comply with DGPR regulations we will need the individual to send us the following information to register an interest in receiving a box:
- Full name – first name, surname and maiden name if appropriate
- Service number
- Military details – Arm/Unit of service and dates
- Full postal address & Telephone number
- Details of individual/organisation providing this data if done on behalf of the veteran and with their permission.
This information should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org Once this project is formally launched individuals, or their families, will be able to register online on The Not Forgotten website https://thenotforgotten.org/, this facility is not yet live.
