Old Soldiers..

.. never die, but this government does it's best to kill them off.
Ian Dale has the story of a VC Gurkha, refused permission to live in this country " because he has no strong links with the UK"
Except he fought for us for years in the jungle against the Japanese and the Malays, and won a VC. For Valour.
I'm on the Scottish committee of the Gurkha Welfare Trust. There are thousands of ex-Gurkhas with no income at all and the GWT pays some 10,000 of then a monthly stipend. I am ashamed of our government's treatment of all our forces, but especially of the Gurkhas, which is why I give my time and money to help them.
Please donate if you can.
