Major James Corrigan,
Durham Light Infantry.
Veterans of the Normandy Campaign, Operation Market Garden and the Battle of the Bulge, during which he was shot 6 times!
Our objective is to support the veterans in any way we can and to take them back to the places that mean so much to them. Last year we went to Normandy and Arnhem, this year we are planning trips to Bastogne (Battle of the Bulge) Normandy and Arnhem.

To achieve this we need your help, we rely solely on sponsorship, donations and in some cases Libor funding as the veterans do not have to pay a penny.
There is no other organisation offering the veterans so many trips each year. If you would like to see a video of the boys and what we do, please click here.
Any donation you can give will go towards helping us achieve our objective and giving something back to these remarkable gentlemen who gave so much for us. Thank you.
At the going down of the sun, and in the morning, we will remember them.
In addition to taking the boys away, we also supply transport, days out in the UK, an annual reunion, we take them for lunch on their birthday and can just sit and chat for a couple of hours if they need company.
Project 71 is run by volunteers and is a strictly not for profit organisation. Every penny raised go towards supporting our veterans.
This is Stan Bowyer remembering his mates at the 49th Div Memorial in Normandy. Trips like this are so important to the veterans.
