Expat British veterans say they will hand back medals if pensions remain frozen

A petition from over 100 expat veterans protesting against the frozen pensions policy is to be presented to pensions minister Steve Webb today – with some veterans claiming they will hand back their medals if the policy is not reversed.

Cashing a pension check that is the same amount as the first one received in 1989 won’t buy the turkey this year in Canada.  Four years I spent dodging torpedoes for King and Commonwealth and there is no good reason why they refuse to index our pensions like those in other countries around the world.
