 “Our Forgotten War Heroes” Veterans from the Merchant Navy, Fishing Fleet and RFA


Why take part?

The Institute of Public Care at Oxford Brookes University is carrying out research funded by the Aged Veterans Fund on be- half of Seafarers UK and Nautilus Welfare Fund. The study is looking at the health and social care needs of all who served on a civilian vessel whilst it was supporting HM Armed Forces and who are now recognised as Veterans. Improving our under- standing will help us plan support services better in the future.

Who should complete the survey?

We are particularly interested in people born before 1st January 1950, howev- er we would also like to hear from younger veterans who were members of the Royal Fleet Auxiliary, the Merchant Navy or the fishing fleet and served on a civilian vessel whilst it was supporting HM Armed Forces.

How to complete the survey?

The survey will take no longer than 10 minutes to complete and your details will remain confidential and will not be used for anything apart from the purposes of this research.

Either you, your spouse, partner or case worker can complete the survey.

You can complete the survey online at:
