Have your say

A regular column by Tulip Radio’s Jan Whitbourn.

Tulip Radio is appealing to all Armed Forces veterans and anyone who has served in the Forces and who has not yet received their Veterans’ Badge to email or contact Tulip Radio.

Everyone who has been in the armed services, for any length of time, is eligible to receive the badge. A date will be set and the medal will be presented by John Hayes MP and South Holland District councillors. Please call Tulip Radio 01775 712400 or email 

I know many of you have already received a medal for your service and bravery during the war but this is something different; we are so excited as this will be a great opportunity for you all to receive a medal for your service and commitment to your country.

We need you to fill out a form and get it back to us as soon as possible. Please help those who are not on computers to complete their forms, and we would be more than happy to help with the forms. Please do not worry if you cannot fill the whole form out as we will help you.

Please can you send this information out to anyone you know who has served in the forces to help us get as many people as we can enrolled.

We look forward to hearing from you as soon as you can as we need time to get the medals ordered. Once we get the medals we will organise an event for you all to come and enjoy and celebrate with your comrades. Have a look at the last event on – Picture Gallery – Armed Forces Day Celebration Day. Thank you to all concerned for your help with these events.
