Escort for Heroes Petition

Discussion in 'Current Affairs, News and Analysis' started by Pyrex, May 7, 2008.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Escort for Heroes

    Please click link above and sign.

    "The bodies of British servicemen and women killed overseas are flown to RAF Lyneham.

    The hearses carrying the bodies receive no special escort once they leave the county of Wiltshire, normally bound for the mortuary at the John Radcliffe
    Hospital, Oxford.

    It is an insult to these brave people and their families that their hearses should travel un-escorted on their journey through the country that these men and women served and died for.

    The signatories to this petition request that the Ministry of Defence, in co-ordination with local Chief Constables, arrange for a formal escort for the bodies of all those Servicemen and women, unless the next-of-kin request otherwise."

    Thank you for your support.
