For several years The Not Forgotten Association has taken small groups of younger veterans and injured service personnel with their partners on rest and recuperation holidays to Majorca, staying at a remote farmhouse. The beautiful location and relaxed atmosphere are very therapeutic and allow injured men and women to spend quality time together. These breaks provide respite from the difficulties of rehabilitation for both the injured service man or woman and their partner, bringing about a more positive outlook on life.
The first of this year’s three groups have just returned home after a hugely successful week. The partner of one injured Royal Marine said: “My partner has been very down due to his injuries, but this trip has done us both the world of good. You can see how much he enjoyed being with the lads again; his spirits have really been lifted.”
