The WW2 generation aren't getting any younger and many find it too cold to turn out on a bitter Sunday in November to pay their respects to fallen comrades. Wouldn't it therefore be a good idea to hold an alternative annual event on say the anniversaries of VE day, D day or VJ day instead? (D day being my preferred choice). Notes: 1) The current veterans day (27 June) bares no military significance. 2) Revenue generated (Poppy appeal) would be considerably more per annum than a collection held during winter months. 3) I have no desire to undermine the significance of the 11th day of the 11th month in this proposal.
