SIMON HART MP JOINS PARLIAMENT'S VETERANS TO RECORD SUPPORT FOR THE ARMED FORCES

Local MP Simon Hart has joined around 30 other MPs who have served in the Armed Forces in a special Remembrance Service in London.

This was the second time that current and retired Armed Forces personnel who are now parliamentarians in the House of Commons have gathered in this way.

Mr Hart, who served in the Royal Gloucestershire Hussars (Territorial Army) was proud to take part in the service.

He said: "It was an honour to pay my respects alongside other parliamentarians who have served in the Armed Forces.

"About 60 MPs have served and I think that the wealth and breadth of military experience represented in the House of Commons sends a message to today's military personnel that their experiences and beliefs are not alien to those representing them."
