The challenge:

We’re collecting as many military stories and photos as we can and we’ve got 9 months to do it!

The aim:

We’re creating an exhibition of dits ‘n’ pics, online and in-person (Covid permitting), to keep Veterans’ stories alive.

How to join in:

Use the Eventbrite link to book onto as many, or as few as you like - The more dits and pics the better!

What do I bring?

Just have your ‘pic’ ready for the Zoom session.

What type of photo?

Any photo from your time in the Forces, to be shared in the exhibition.It does not have to directly relate to your dit.


- Photo of you in your uniform

- Or you doing something interesting or funny

- Or in an unusual place

Bring your mates and oppos, or come as you are and meet new Veterans.

Any questions please get in touch.

See you on Zoom!
