What destinations can Royal Navy or Merchant Navy veterans visit?
Where Navy veterans supported active engagements on land, they would be eligible for funding for commemorative visits to these destinations. Murmansk, Malta, the fall of Singapore, the landings in Crete and Sicily, the landings in Italy, the evacuations from Dunkirk and the Normandy landings are some examples. In these instances, there is no need to provide any additional information other than that requested on the application form.
However, we recognise that some destinations that were in unoccupied, allied countries were major bases for active service and were directly affected by hostilities. We will consider applications from veterans to such destinations provided they include a short covering note showing that the destination has a strong link with their active service and that the purpose of the visit is commemorative. Please note that we may set funding allocations for these visits that differ from the table published in the application materials, in line with their actual cost.
