Fund title: Heroes Return
Focus of fund/fund aims:
To allow WW2 veterans from the UK to visit the sites on which they served.
See further information.
WWII veterans resident in the UK or Republic of Ireland who saw active service overseas with or alongside the British and Allied Armed Forces in the Second World War are eligible. WWII veterans may be accompanied by a spouse and/or carer. Widows and widowers of WWII veterans are also eligible, in most cases.
So that as many veterans as possible get this opportunity, we can only fund one visit for each veteran, widow or widower. This means that if a veteran has already received funding for a commemorative visit since April 2009, we would not be able to fund a second visit.
