This year medals are being awarded to our nuclear test veterans, the men and women who served in the military during Britain’s nuclear testing programme in the 1950s and 60s. To mark this, four special films have been created in which young people in each of the home nations interview nuclear test veterans.

John Folkes and students from St John’s Catholic Comprehensive

Brian Davies and students from Lliswerry High

David Whyte and students from Clydebank High School

Mr Naikawakawavesi and students from Magherafelt High School
