Fife Veterans Association

At Defence Questions yesterday I took the opportunity to praise the work of the Fife Veteran's Association. Meeting regularly at the Royal British Legion they do a good job at providing social and campaigning support. Here's what I said:

"Will the Minister join me in praising the work of the Fife Veterans Association, who do the sort of work that he described—voluntary work, promoting and standing up for veterans throughout the kingdom? The association does a splendid job promoting the rights of those veterans, and it deserves the support of the House and beyond.

Kevan Jones, the Minister, responded:
"I am pleased to join the hon. Gentleman in congratulating Fife veterans. I visited Scotland before Christmas and met Veterans Scotland. I pay tribute to them and the range of organisations involved in Veterans Scotland that are doing a fantastic job in Scotland to promote veterans' affairs and offer practical assistance to veterans."

    This is a great web site full of great information for those that have been out of the armed forces for years or for days. The men that run the group are friendly, helpful and have a wealth of knowledge that they are keen to share. The web site has profiles that are frank and to the point. The Fife Veterans Association is growing into a force to be listened to. There membership grows each week so if you want to be part of one of the fastest growing veterans group in Scotland get yourself along to the British Legion in the new row in Dunfermline on Tuesdays from 11am till 1.30pm.
