Paul Botterill, The Treasurer of the Not Forgotten Charity, has contacted the Lord-Lieutenant’s office – https://thenotforgotten.org/. He has asked for help in tracking down veterans of WW2 from the three services and the merchant marines. The charity would like to send a commemorative gift box as the 75th anniversary celebrations of both VE and VJ days were severely curtailed, and they particularly want to show the veterans they are not forgotten. The box will contain a variety of gifts and a card from their patron, HRH The Princess Royal.
There is no official record of these service personnel and so Paul is looking for help in locating them, or any organisations that may be able to help.
