Telic / Herrick Associations

Discussion in 'Charities and Welfare' started by Two_Cookers, Apr 5, 2013.

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. Just wondered whether there are any veteran's associations yet for either Telic or Herrick? Conscious that the latter is still going but that between the two ops there will be probably most likely be somewhere like 100,000 personnel who served. That's a big cohort that's still young in age but with a large potential to draw into some collective focused association(s).

    Is it too early, does one exist, is there interest or how would one go about looking at creating such a thing?
     
  2. Good question! Apparently there is a similar thing for Cyprus vets - 175,000 having received the UNFICYP medal.
     
  3. Thanks Sundance, I had heard of the RBL. My question was whether there was a group like the Normandy Veteran's or Burma Star etc.
