Hello and Welcome!
The Baton is designed to represent the nation’s support for our forces and as a symbol of our national conscience. It contains within it a message - to the people of this country and to our armed forces themselves.To the British publicIt is recognised that we all have the right to object to war and we all have the right to our own beliefs. It is that very freedom of choice that our forces are defending – and it must be cherished as it has been achieved at great cost in human terms.As a nation we have chosen to have Armed Forces to defend our rights and, as long as that is the case, we should stand by them and support them whatever they are asked to do in the name of their country.To our serving personnelWe want to reassure our serving personnel of our nation’s pride in their professionalism and dedication. We are proud of their efforts and assure them that they are always in our thoughts whilst on active service.
The primary mission of The Baton is to raise awareness amongst the British public about the reality of life for service personnel and their families in the British Armed Forces and to ensure that they are given the level of support that they are rightfully due.The Baton’s aim is not to compete with existing forces charities – rather we aim to complement the activities of those charities by focusing on raising awareness about the issues, so providing them with additional support and backing.Please follow us Facebook - www.facebook.com/thebatonTwitter - http://twitter.com/thebastionbaton
