A Land Fit for Heroes? The Treatment of WWI Veterans in Great Britain

We want to encourage people around the world to donate online to their country’s veterans’ charities.
These are tough times. As Remembrance Day and Veterans day comes up, because of Covid-19, collectors are unable to do face to face collections.

But after 1918, it seemed like the promise of a Land fit for heroes was not a reality.
