Yes they are quite strong, the sad part about it is we are mostly of past older wars and have an annoying habit of keep 'Falling off of the perch' and individual organisations are closing down from lack of members at quite an alarming rate. I can name three from the 2nd WW of recent times, The Dunkirk Vets, Arctic Convoys, Torbruk and Normandy with a No: of others I have not mentioned. Younger ex service men and women, understandably have jobs to do, Wives or Husbands young children etc: and do not concentrate on things quite so much as the oldies. As I understand it, it is the same in many other countries. lcm1
