  2. Thought I'd bump this remember you do not need to be a British legion member to apply for a holiday you just need to have served in the armed forces also war widows and widowers can also apply just call the number 08457 725 725 and they will direct you to your local British Legion office who will give/send you more details etc
  3. Must emphasize it is a free holiday your local British Legion local office will confirm this when you ring they will also pay for your travel costs should you need it please share this with all organisations or people you feel may benefit
