Taking the message to the front door of the BBC HQ in six major cities.
What an amazing day Saturday the 18th of May turned out to be.
Considering the COLD and wet weather we had over 300 in front of the BBC and each speaker directed their anger towards the BBC and the politicians who continue to betray our Veterans.
We had Forces TV, STV and Russia TV as well as photographers!
Our guest speakers were all FANTASTIC.
Alan McNamara was the perfect host introducing everyone and Regan's voice had me in tears!
Lt Col John Charteris MBE MC - took aim at the BBC and DID NOT MISS.
Jimmy Miller - spoke of our Band Of Brothers and Sisters.
Dennis Hutchings - he said "BOLLOCKS" to the restrictions placed upon him because he is going through the court system and he called for all serving Armed Forces Personnel to turn up at our future protests and demos proudly wearing their uniforms and mentioned the rumours of a strike and how he would welcome that.
The two things they ALL spoke of was
1) TOGETHERNESS amongst Veterans and our various groups. They spoke of how TOGETHER WE ARE STRONG.
2) How we are not going to go away but rather how our demos and protests will only get BIGGER AND STRONGER.
On a personal level this whole weekend will live with me until the end of my days. It was not only a pleasure to be in the company of the likes of Dennis Hutchings and John Charteris MBE MC it was also an HONOUR.
Alan had said yesterday that speaking to Dennis over the last couple of weeks has shown him that he's just an ordinary squaddie and when we went for dinner last night he told us stories of his time in service and that proved beyond doubt that he is indeed an ordinary squaddie going through extra-ordinary circumstances.
On behalf of our team at JFNIVS we want to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU to each and everyone of you.
THANK YOU to everyone who contributed towards Dennis's expenses. Due to your AMAZING GENEROSITY we paid for Dennis's flights, 2 nights accommodation and all his food costs and the great news is that there is still £85.70 left over which we will be donating to the Who Dares Cares charity.
You are ALL truly AMAZING people and I salute you all.
