WW1 Glasgow Commonwealth Commemorative Event - 4 August 2014
14 days ago
This will be the opening event of the UK’s four-year National Programme to commemorate the centenary of the First World War. It offers the opportunity to commemorate the start of the First World War alongside Commonwealth partners and to remember all those from across the Commonwealth who fought and died or were otherwise affected by the War. It is also a moment to reflect on efforts to promote peace and stability across the Commonwealth. The Cathedral service will last from 10.00 until 10.50 and will be led by Reverend Dr Laurence Whitley, Minister of Glasgow Cathedral. Around 1,400 people will attend the service including representatives from across the Commonwealth. Also present will be members of the Armed Forces, the British Legion, faith groups and organisations representing young people.


We are Veterans.  We recognise that for many Veterans and their families, aspects of life after leaving the Services can be challenging.  With over 50 Veterans’ organisations in Scotland alone, we understand that it can be frustrating to find just the right person to help with a problem.  And we know that whether you have been “in” for 3 years or 30 years, or “out” for 6 weeks or 6 years, problems will arise that could use some help.

So we have set up this website which we believe will put in one place most of the resources you might need.  Whether it is finding the right school or college for you or your kids; options for somewhere to live; getting access to a War Disablement pension; or finding a route into employment, you will find it here, together with much more.  You will find some topics duplicated under more than one heading; this is for ease of access and to make it more likely that you will find what you need.

For those who work in Veterans support organisations, please check out the Resources tab; there may be something useful for you there.

And because we aren’t perfect, there may be some resources and organisations that we have missed.  So if you know of some, please let us know through the Contacts tab so we can share it.  Because when Veterans work together, they make life better for Veterans.

So what are you waiting for – get in there!!
