Tom Brake pledges 'To Do His Bit'Tom made the pledge on The Royal British Legion's campaign website, www.timetodoyourbit.org.uk.

The website also features the charity's general election manifesto, which sets out priorities for the next Government to improve conditions for Service Personnel and their families, the bereaved, veterans and dependants.

Kevin Shinkwin, the Legion's Head of Public Affairs, said: "We're really grateful to Tom Brake for pledging to do his bit. The entire Armed Forces family needs the support of politicians from all parties, and our manifesto outlines practical ways the next government can help. We hope all the parties will give it serious consideration and that every MP will pledge to do their bit".

Tom said, "We in politics should never forget the sacrifices made by our armed men and women, not only in battle but when they come home. It is then we take stock of the toll that war takes, physical and mental, on them and their families.

"This is why it is important to do your bit, and visit www.timetodoyourbit.org.uk to find out how you can get involved in the campaign."
