Second World War Veterans visit Sandhurst Primary School
Today, three Second World War Veterans visited Sandhurst Primary school to educate year 6 pupils on their wartime experiences, while also raising awareness of the 75th anniversaries of VE Day and VJ Day this year.
The event included an interactive learning session from the National Army Museum, a veteran’s Q+A with personnel from the Kings Troop Royal Horse Artillery and a live performance from the D-Day Darlings.
The Royal British Legion’s event marked 100 days to go until the VE Day 75 commemorations in Central London, where the Legion are inviting 750 individuals from the Second World War generation to take part in a programme of events in May.
We’re delighted to once again work closely with The Royal British Legion and an array of organisations and charities. It is this government’s hope that VE Day 75 and VJ Day 75 leaves a lasting legacy and provides an opportunity for people young and old to reflect on the achievements and sacrifice of our Second World War generation.Defence Secretary Ben Wallace
