Served in Iraq between 2003 and 2009? Chilcot wants to hear from you

Sir John Chilcot, Chairman of the Iraq Inquiry, has issued an open invitation to UK military personnel who served in Iraq between 2003 and 2009 to attend an event at Tidworth Garrison on 14 September. Alternatively, views in writing are also welcome.

In his letter, Sir John told veterans: "The purpose of this event is to gain insights from those who are in a unique position to talk about how the campaign was conducted and the impact it had upon their lives.

"This event is an opportunity for you to ensure that your voice is heard and your views feed into the lessons that the inquiry identify."

BAFF members and BAFF military supporters are very welcome to copy their Chilcot submissions to the Federation, if they wish.
