As you will be aware it is the 50th anniversary this year of the deployment of British troops onto the streets of Northern Ireland in 1969.
Over 300,000 service personnel were deployed to Northern Ireland over the subsequent 38 years. In total 1441 UK Armed Forces personnel died as a result of operations in Northern Ireland or paramilitary actions in other countries.
To mark this significant anniversary we will be hosting a commemorative event at the NMA on the 14th August 2019.
The event will be open to recipients of the General Service Medal ( Northern Ireland). Representatives from families of British Armed Forces personnel killed as a result of operations in Northern Ireland are also invited to register their interest. Registration for the event will be open in Spring 2019 however people are being encouraged to register their interest for this event now.
Please see the link below to the page on the website which provides more information as well as the link to register. The event is also being promoted via the Regimental Associations.
This is a very significant event for us this year and will be of profound importance for many veterans and their families. Please do all you can to promote this event by passing it around your members, especially those who served in Northern Ireland.
