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.
