In late November 2020, Age Cymru Dyfed were delighted to be awarded a Bronze Award by the Ministry of Defence’s Employer Recognition Scheme for their work to support veterans through the West Wales Veterans’ Archive, Valuing Veterans project and more.
The Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) acknowledges employers who have provided exceptional support to the armed forces community and defence by going above and beyond their covenant pledges. Bronze Award recipients must have signed the Armed Forces Covenant; promote being armed forces-friendly; and be open to employing reservists, veterans (including the wounded), cadet instructors and military spouses.
Thank you to all of the volunteers who have helped Age Cymru Dyfed achieve this!
The West Wales Veterans’ Archive is saddened to learn of the death of World War Two veteran Jean McKay at the age of 99 years.
