Story

National Servicemen were conscripted into the British Military at the age of 18; for most of them, just three short years after leaving school. Far too young to vote, or marry without their parents consent. And yet many of these young men were thrown into war zones and other areas of conflict and danger with only the most basic training as soldiers, sailors or airmen. Regrettably, large numbers of these young men died or experienced life changing injuries' and/or death inducing health conditions as a result of their service, yet disconcertingly their service and sacrifice has largely been forgotten. War memorials have , quite rightly, been placed in market squares, town centre's, churches, memorial gardens and other public spaces throughout the length and breadth of the country. However National Service memorials can only be found in a handful of British locations. The National Service Veterans Alliance is a group of former National Servicemen who believe it is our duty to ensure that we establish a lasting memorial that faithfully commemorates our 16 long years of loyalty and service to our country.

You can help make this happen! Please support our campaign by donating to Mike Homer's 100 mile Wheelchair Challenge on 17th May 2021. Details to follow shortly.

    Of course Mike Homer in his wheelchair was unable to personally lay the National Service Veterans Alliance wreath, and so David Willis, NSVA Chairman also made the journey to Princes Risborough to fulfil our obligations to our 2.2 million comrades.
