Only a few hundred nuclear test veterans out of 22,500 remain alive, but later this month they will finally get their day before the British government.

A video of what nuclear test veterans experienced on Christmas Island in the 1950s will be shown to MPs in parliament on Wednesday, June 25.

Douglas Hern (77), a nuclear test veteran, from Moulton, who has dedicated his life to winning justice for the veterans and their families, said 20,000 servicemen who were made to watch the nuclear bombs explode have already died of cancer – and many of the personnel still alive are suffering illnesses which they claim are linked to radiation exposure.
