The Shadow Defence Team has again this week and last been all over the country campaigning in key seats.
Last Thursday Vernon Coaker, the Shadow Defence Secretary visited Col. Simon Diggins OBE, the Parliamentary Candidate for South West Hertfordshire for a CLP social event. You’ll recall from an earlier post in January that Simon left the Army in August 2014 after some 35 years in service.
Here’s a couple of pictures from the evening:
On Tuesday Vernon Coaker visited Brigg & Goole to campaign with the candidate, Jacky Crawford. Whilst there the pair met with Public Service students from the local college who are looking at careers in the Armed Forces as well as veterans. The discussion centred around Britain’s role in the world and how we can best support those who keep up safe, both in service and as veterans.
