PROUD TO HAVE SERVED

The freedom which this country and the Western world enjoyed throughout this time owes much to the men and women of Britain’s armed forces who stepped forward ready to defend with their lives if necessary, its values and democracy.

They served at home, in Europe, with NATO, and many other parts of the world, but they served with pride.

Welcome to the British Cold War Veterans website

 

British Cold War Veterans are those people who served in HM armed forces (Regular and Reserve) during the Cold War (1945 – 1991), a period which has been described as the ‘most dangerous time ever in world history’ when the powers of both East and West squared up militarily taking everyone to the brink of global annihilation.

 

It was a ‘war’, often fought covertly and in secret, but one in which the men and women of Great Britain’s armed forces, who served during this period, were in a constant state of readiness for what was seen as being mankind’s final conflict.
