Dear Friends & Supporters


Re: WASP MARCH PAST 1st October 2017.

As you are aware we hold an annual March Past in memory of those brave veterans from the West Indies that sacrificed so much for world peace.

Due to a system failure beyond our control, yesterday (27th) we were informed that many of the correspondence sent out was not delivered, resulting in a significant number of you not receiving any information about WASP Annual March.

Once we knew of this we discussed and came to the conclusion that the best way forward is to reschedule the March Past to 20th June 2018 around WASP's birthday.

This , as you can imagine, was a very painful decision, but unfortunately we had to make it.

We are aware of the support many individuals, private and public sector give WASP and we would like to thank you for that.

We look forward to seeing you all again in June 2018 - the 70th anniversary of Windrush Day.

Warmest regards,

Vincent McBean. Chairman WASP Board of Trustees.

*******************

Previously, many service personnel had approached me* regarding the lack of publicity and information of the contribution and sacrifice made by servicemen and women from the Caribbean and Africa.

This is more evident on public remembrance parades.

To address this, celebrate African History Month, write our own history of events and educate the mis-informed we at WASP initiated a March Past and ceremony for our fallen comrades 7 years ago.

This event is for all service personnel Army, Navy, Merchant Navy, Air force, the fire brigade, nurses, police etc, who have been or are in service.

If you are not service personnel please come along, capture images and support.

Until we meet,

Regards,

Vince McBean*
Chairman WASP
