Raising awareness of our Armed Forces Project

Brian Wallis, Mesothelioma UK Ambassador, together with volunteer members of Anglia Asbestos Diseases Support Groups (AADSG) have been busy this year, promoting Mesothelioma UK, and in particular, our Armed Forces Project.

The group distributed over 800 leaflets at various military and veterans’ events to veterans and senior medical/health and safety representatives at the following establishments

Brian, Eileen and Joseph recently attended events at the Imperial War Museum in London, the IWM Duxford in Cambridgeshire, the RAF Museum in Hendon, Middlesex, and visited the medical facilities at RAF Coningsby, Lincolnshire, at RAF Marham, Norfolk and the Royal Engineers Heritage Centre at Waterbeach Barracks, Cambridgeshire.

In November Brian attended a health and wellbeing event organised by Ipswich Mind and the Suffolk Armed Forces Covenant and also a Remembrance Sunday service in Goldhanger, Essex where he was able to spread the word about our services to those attending.

Brian, has military connections going back at least four generations and himself served as a Logistics Officer with MoD before retiring in 1996. His late wife Rosemary was also a Crown employee, before her untimely and tragic death from mesothelioma in 2013.
