Welcome to The War Widows’ Association

To launch our 50th Anniversary year we have created a cook book with the help of our lovely members and supporters. At only £5 per copy plus £2 postage and packing (per book) it’s an ideal stocking filler or treat for yourself. With the fascinating stories that accompany the recipes it’s a really good read too. Here are some snippets …..

I hope you enjoy it with a cup of tea or a glass of Spanish sherry!

When you try me recipe bow ties are optional.

The War Widows’ Association of Great Britain was formed in 1971 becoming a registered charity in 1991 and has developed into the United Kingdom’s leading representative organisation for widow(er)s of Armed Forces Personnel where death has been caused by or hastened by service.

Everything that we do is based around our 3 core values….


Campaigning is the foundation of the War Widows’ Association; the Association has managed many successful campaigns to improve the conditions of War Widows and War Widowers.


We care by signposting members to the appropriate help and through our network of Regional Organisers we offer friendship and support.


Remembrance, the third pillar of the War Widows’ Association is a very important part of its programme of events.
