The Bedford Times and Citizen recently met with a number of our members to ask them about The Wrong Time to Die campaign and their thoughts about war in general. Click here to watch the video and to read the full report.
The Wrong Time to Die campaign was set up to ensure that all War Widows are treated equally and calls upon the Government to put right a despicable wrong.
A small and declining group of War Widows awarded the pension between 31st March 1973 and 5th April 2005 is being treated differently to other War Widows. They are asked to surrender their War Pension on remarriage or cohabitation. However those awarded their pension from the War Pension Scheme before 31st March 1973 or after 5th April 2005 from the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme are able to retain their pension on remarriage or cohabitation.
