Charlie takes the Royal British Legion Pledge

Today I pledged to do my bit for the British Armed Forces family. I met with representatives from The Royal British Legion and was presented with a copy of the Legion’s manifesto for the next general election. 



The manifesto sets out priorities for the next Government to improve conditions for the British Armed Forces past and present and their families. It encourages MPs and prospective parliamentary candidates to “do their bit” for Service Personnel and their families, the bereaved, veterans and dependants.


The entire Armed Forces family needs the support of politicians from all parties. So I was delighted to meet with The Royal British Legion. They have an important role to play in highlighting the needs of the whole Armed Forces family. I have pledged to do my bit and would encourage everyone to do the same by visiting the general election manifesto website – www.timetodoyourbit.org.uk - to find out more.
