The Northern Ireland Veterans Association latest campaign The poppy field of remembrance at Westminster Abbey contains many Regimental, Association and an overall conflict plot, listing all official campaigns that British service personnel have fallen in since WW2. Every conflict from Aden to Afghan is listed and rightly so. Apart from one....The one that many of you on this site, it seems never served in as it didn't happen! Northern Ireland is not included. To see the conflict plot showing ALL conflicts that British personnel have fallen in since WW2, but with no NI conflict listing is simply wrong. It is especially disrepectful to the approx 1600 ( edited ) personnel who fell in action or were killed whilst on ops protecting us from terrorism throughout that 30 year campaign. 30,000 were injured and 300,000 served. The Northern Ireland Veterans Association is also excluded from the Associations plots yet even allied FOREIGN Associations are included and again I state rightly so but surely, our own must be included likewise. The RBL state that these fallen are included in the Regimental plots but what if that Regiment doesn,t exist anymore? Many Regiments have gone west and widows, parents, sons and daughters of the fallen have no where to place their poppy tribute if that Regiment is not there. The only dedicated NI option they then have is NIVA! After all, if NIVA can offer full Remembrance and Commemoration on behalf of the fallen, then so can the RBL who preach this as per their detailed core values. We shall see.....
