Pointless in my opinion. A website can whinge as much as it wants about the treatment of soldiers. The gobment won't do anything about it. The pot is empty and what is in there is for the workshy cnuts who watch Jeremy Kyle; not us scum.

For the record. I think we are treat quite well.

B&T, I'm not joining, mainly because their website was pretty uninspiring.

H4H started because not enough was being done for wounded troops coming back from ops. It started small, got massive, needed admin, incurred running costs.

OOA is starting up because H4H is doing it the wrong way. There is arguably good reason for an organisation that has got as big as H4H to have paid staff managing it.

I emboldened the bit above because you asked people on the internet what you should do.

Just decide to join ,or not. If you think you can make a difference, need to make a difference or that joining a website/organisation that might make a difference would help you, then just do it.

But ask the question: What, if in 5 years time, OOA has got so big and successful, it needs to employ a director, a couple of accountants and a web design team to manage it's growing success, are you going to bin it because it's sold out it's principals?

You don't need anyone on here to tell you what to do.

Just another 'woe is me' site.
Purports to have a list of charities but noticable that non of the main Military Charities are listed.

Strangely enough there does not seem to be a "Oath" anywhere on the site or much of anything to be honest, no sign of the 10 million members they are hoping for either.

and as for you, you pile of dog spunk, why do you have to sit making up mongaloidal polls to help you decide something. If you haven't got the balls and intelligence to make your own mind up, maybe you should go back to school.

From their site:

It is soon to be RBL Poppy Day and WE ARE Going to HAVE It, despite grapevines spreading on facebook, of local councils banning the sale of Royal British Legion (RBL) poppies, or the flying the flags of our nation, or anything similar. It is a day for the families, friends, Veterans and the military community of Britain to respect and remember those that have made the Ultimate Sacrifice for Great Britain, and the right to pay these respects without fear of political/civil bureaucracy, or religious protest.


AS MEMBERS OF THE VETERAN COMMUNITY OF THIS COUNTRY’S ARMED FORCES, IT IS ONLY THE BARE MINIMUM RESPECT THAT OUR COMMUNITY DESERVES!




We expect no shops or pubs to refuse the RBL the right to collect or sell poppies (especially because of the fear of upsetting any migrant communities), and we expect no employers to ban the right of British people to wear their Poppy proudly, both inside and outside the workplace.
Hmmmmm. Don't think I'll be joining anytime soon ....

I took mine in 1958, no one ever released me from it and as far as I,m concerned it stands as good as the day I took it, God Save The Queen.

What a very strange website. How do the authors/organisers expect charitable organisations such as H4H to run efficiently without full time workers? Those workers need paying. It would be nice if their main motivation was not to work for a salary but in reality, you pay for the best - people who can take your organisation forward.

As far as the domination by H4H of the charitable market - no I do not agree with it but who is to blame? H4H or the RBL? Either way, joining a whinging website will not change things.

Very whiney and aggrieved, so it seems. Clearly gagging to become a paid-up pressure group so it can start throwing its weight around. I wouldn't be surprised if there's at least one hidden agenda tucked away in there.

To be avoided, IMHO.
