Chelsea Pensioners Derek & Les were the first to make use of MBNA Thames Clippers generous gift of 8 lifetime passes on their Thames river services for the veterans to share. The maiden voyage? A trip down to Tower Bridge. The verdict from Derek & Les:

The Chelsea Pensioners were at the wonderful Temple Church in London last weekend recording a special World War One Centenary CD with the Chapel Choir of the Royal Hospital Chelsea . More details to follow later in the year, but needless to say it will be a very special and poignant set of recordings.

A great # throwbackthursday image of a vintage intergenerational scene, and another more recent version. Times may change, but the Chelsea Pensioners will always play their part in the Armed Forces community 🇬🇧 ️
