Then, as part of Age UK Sheffield’s new Veterans’ Fund, there will be a Veterans’ Reminiscence event on Wednesday, November 2, between 1pm and 3pm.

A spokesman said: “Our aim is to create Yorkshire’s biggest military memory bank and bridge the gap between generations of ex and current service personnel.

“Share with us your military memories. Were you born before 1950? Did you serve in the forces? Do you have a story to tell? Or a piece of memorabilia to share? Then come along.”

The event will be taking place at The Wellbeing Centre, Centre in the Park, Guildford Avenue, Sheffield, S2 2PL.
