The British Nuclear Test Veterans Association

Why does the Veterans' Foundation support British Nuclear Test Veterans Association?

The British Nuclear Test Veterans Association was formed to unite, recognise and campaign for the servicemen who participated in the British Nuclear Tests.

The test programme ran from 1952 and is the largest tri-service operation since D-Day.

Conducted on Christmas Island, Montebello, Maralinga, Emu Field and Nevada, it is believed 1500 veterans who witnessed the tests are still alive.

The British Nuclear Test Veterans Association supports all atomic test veterans with war pensions, compensation claims, reunions and seeking former colleagues.
