Western Units Support the Royal British Legion

VJ Day Aug 21

The Tewkesbury based Severn Unit have supported two special events organised by members of the Royal British Legion.

The month started with a Service of Thanksgiving for Armed Forces Day which was held in Tewkesbury Methodist Church.
This replaced the usual Armed Forces Day Parade held in June which was cancelled due to Covid restrictions.

Later in the month, a special service to mark the VJ Day Commemoration was held outside the Town Hall and MVS members joined with Town Mayor, Cllr. Joanne Raywood, other members of the Council and members of the British Legion with the Town Crier introducing the Service.

Head of Severn Unit Nic Price said, “After nearly 18 months of Covid restrictions it was a great pleasure and honour for us to attend these important events in the town”.
