  1. It hasn't been mentioned here before so I'll post a mention here and in the Military History forums.

    The Big Lottery Fund has agreed to sponsors WW 2 Veterans Pilgrimage Travel for the 65th Anniversary of the end of the Second World War.

    This was driven by the campaign for Normandy Veterans to revisit D Day on the 65th Anniversary, but has been widened to support travel by veterans and widows plus carers even if they have already travelled at government expense. It will be open from 2009-2011.
