Douglas welcomes Korean Veterans Association to Westminster


Last Monday, Douglas Carswell MP welcomed a group from the Clacton District Korean Veterans Association to Parliament.


“I am delighted to welcome members of the local Korean Veterans Association to Westminster, and I very much hope that they enjoyed their tour of Parliament. It is especially fitting that I met with the Veterans Association today, in light of the Remembrance Sunday events taking place around the country yesterday.”


Last Sunday, Douglas attended a Remembrance service in Walton on the Naze. The service, organised by the Royal British Legion, was held at Walton Parish Church Memorial Gardens.


"I was honoured to take part in this service and I felt immensely proud watching our young Royal Marine Cadets on parade. We owe our troops - both past and present - a huge deal, and I think the large turnout in Walton and in other areas around my constituency shows how highly we respect the job they do."
