How we remember: Military support the 11-mile Remembrance walk


On Friday 4 November 2022, the Military team walked 11 miles in honour of Remembrance week 2022 and Remembrance Day which takes place on the 11th day of the 11th month.

The 11-mile walk took the team around historical locations in the Merthyr area, along the Taff Fechan trail to the countryside villages of Pontsarn and Pontsticill in the Brecon Beacons National Park and looping back around to Merthyr via Cefn Coed y Cymmer. At the end of a very rainy and windy week, the clouds dispersed and the sun made a welcomed appearance for the day.

This year, the Royal British Legion are remembering veterans of the Falklands War and WW2 and those who continue to play a vital role in service to Britain today. The Royal British Legion will do this by commemorating military and civilian service through a variety of anniversaries and events in 2022.
The Royal British Legion encourage everyone to embrace the traditions of remembrance and make it their own by creating their own Act of Remembrance.

Our Military team continue to provide legal services to veterans and service personnel who require advice on a range of military service legal issues. In our day to work, we hear personal stories of the difficulties and challenges service personnel and veterans encounter, whether it be through an injury sustained or their experience of the transition from military to civilian life.

It was important for the team to create our own Act of Remembrance by walking for the soldiers that have fallen, and the service and sacrifice of all those that have defended our freedoms.

Our team raised £190.00 for the Royal British Legion which we will donate memory and honour of the Armed Forces community, serving and ex-serving personnel.

Should you wish to, you can donate to the Royal British Legion via our fundraising page. Any donations would be greatly appreciated.
