Veterans Minister

Discussion in 'The Quarterdeck' started by Billy Q, Dec 29, 2015.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Who recalls those dark, lonely, days when we were without a Veterans' Minister. We now have had 10 or 11 when once we had none.
    Their Office, with around 30 civil servants is expensive, but worthwhile......

    Just think, before it was established we would not have had a HM Armed Forces Veterans Lapel Badge.
    If you didn't qualify for yours--- they are currently available to purchase on E Bay for 99p.
     
  2. Were those dark lonely days the same days you didn't get on the Buckie nice and early?
     
  3. There's 6 actually, starting with the head shed, the Secretary of State for Defence, Michael Fallon.

    There's only one for veterans whose full title is Parliamentary Under Secretary of State and Minister for Defence Personnel and Veterans, the present incumbent being Mark Lancaster MP.

    I take it you had to buy a badge then Norman?

    Here's a breakdown of the (shrinking) MoD civilians if you wish to get even more outraged ( you may note it includes RFA personnel in the numbers).
