Wartime Heritage Obtains UK Veterans Badges for Three WWII Veterans May 17, 2008   On   Saturday,   May   10th,   4   members   of   the   Wartime   Heritage   Association   visited Second   World   War   RCAF   and   RAF   Veteran   Ron   Gaudet   at   his   home   in Yarmouth,   Nova Scotia to present him with the UK Armed Forces Veterans Lapel Badge. The    Association    applied    for    the    Veterans    Badge,    on    behalf    of    three    eligible Veterans, with the Ministry of Defence at Whitehall in London, England. In   addition   to   Ron   Gaudet,   Royal   Navy   Veteran's   Fred   Sandy   and   David   Chaplin   also received their Badges in May of 2008. Both are residents of Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. The   badge   is   an   enamelled,   engraved,   and   pinned,   lapel   badge   featuring   the   words “HM   Armed   Forces   –   Veteran”,   "which   encompass   the   Tri-Service,   Anchor,   Crossed Swords    and    Eagle    motif.    Its    symbolism    is    intended    to    unite    all    veterans    in recognising   the   commonality   of   their   service,   to   encourage   a   sense   of   unity   and community   between   surviving   veterans   and   to   ignite   public   recognition   of   current veterans and their continuing contribution to society". Veterans   of   the   United   Kingdom   can   obtain   information   on   eligibility   and   apply   for   the   UK Armed   Forces   Veterans   Lapel   Badge on the "Veterans UK website" of the British Ministry of Defence.
