This week the NFA took a group of more than 50 veterans from service care homes and associations across the south east of England for a lunchtime trip on the Bluebell Railway. This popular annual outing gives guests the opportunity to socialise with like-minded people for a few hours and, judging by the smiles and laughter, everyone soon got to know each other.

The group included four members of Bomber Command, the eldest of who was 98-year-old Jo Lancaster. The Association would like to thank Javelin Global Commodities (UK) Ltd and CEO Peter Bradley who generously funded the day and accompanied the veterans on the trip.
