On Monday 27th February in the Palace of Westminster Labour Friends of the Forces held its Re-Launch Event.

The event took place in the form of a panel discussion on the subject of ‘Defending Britain in an uncertain 21st century’.

This included contributions from Gen Sir Graeme Lamb, former Director of UK Special Forces and former Commander Field Army. Gen Lamb was joined on the panel by Nia Griffith MP, Shadow Defence Secretary and Peter Apps, Reuters Global Affairs Columnist and British Army Reservist.

We were pleased to welcome MPs, Peers, Veterans and Labour Friends of the Forces Supporter from across the country.

This was the start of a series of events in which we aim to build on the support for Labour Friends of the Forces.

We hope to unveil a series of regional events across the length and breadth of the UK in the next few weeks.
