Our Ethos


To provide a formal identity card, proving former service, which is recognised nationally with members costs offset by benefits.  


  • MoD has been making empty promises to provide a proof of service card since about 2003, but for some the requirement is now.


  • We run British Veterans essentially as a not-for-profit-organisation, taking 0% commission from discounts and covering incurred costs with membership fees.

  • Ultimately, our goal is to help initiate a nationwide Veterans ID Card funded by the government or the MoD


Three ex-servicemen established British Veterans back in 2003 after discussions with the MoD and the realisation that a formal Veterans ID Card was unlikely to be introduced in the near future and as we saw earlier this year, is still some way off. We felt there was a requirement to be able to prove former service without the need for discharge documents.

Whilst British Veterans is primarily an Identity Card proving former service, we have sought to provide a range of benefits to members by creating Partnerships with commercial organisations that acknowledge what it means to be a veteran, and offer discounts.
