Atlantic Star Veterans
This year marks the 70th anniversary of the Battle of the Atlantic , It is also the last, so they say,I would like to hear your opinion about that should it be?? Remembering that Liverpool played a big part in the Battle , there is a lot happening in the city around the back end of May 23rd – 28th There will ships from as far-a- field as Australia to Canada plus a number from Europe putting in to Liverpool, but for me the main event will be the Atlantic veterans, those who hold the Atlantic star medal who after a service in the Anglican Cathedral will form up behind the band of the Royal Marines and march past, and as they say maybe for the last time.
I and a number of V.I.P s, members of FACT and other dignitaries had a chance to meet and talk to 14 of them at the Town hall about there experiences, this was one of the most interesting meeting I have had with a group of veterans.
I will write some more about our meeting and the Veterans , I would still like to know if you think this should be their last parade?
