    I do not like the sound of this at all. The title, “Women In War” smacks of the glorification of war, & we get far too much of that already, from the British Legion & such bodies.
    It is the complete opposite of the ethos of Veterans for Peace.
    What sites will it be visiting? I sincerely hope it will not include the ‘Monument to the Women of World War II’, close by the Cenotaph in Whitehall? ‘Monuments to the Gullible’ would be more apt title for each of them.
    Perhaps I have got it wrong, & the walk is celebrating women’s OPPOSITION to war? If that be the case, then surely that should be indicated in the title?
