Thanks to newspaper editors up and down the country, the British Element Trieste Force Association has recruited 23 new members and seven associate members over the past year.
This association was formed in 2004 for those ex-servicemen who served in the Free Territory of Trieste between 1945 and 1954.
In addition to the veterans, whose average age is 85, we welcome family members as associates, some of whom spent time in Trieste as children.
Photographs and memories are published in a quarterly magazine and further information is available on the association website.
Regional meetings are held in various parts of the country. The 2017 annual reunion will be in Cardiff in March.
