A Service to mark the 90th Anniversary of the Founding of Combat Stress

Their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall attended a Service to mark the 90th anniversary of the founding of Combat Stress, at Westminster Abbey, on Tuesday 12th May 2009.

Combat Stress is the leading charity specialising in the mental health care of veterans of the armed forces. Since it was founded in 1919, Combat Stress has supported almost 100,000 veterans of every campaign that British forces have been involved with since the First World War.

In his Bidding the Dean of Westminster, the Very Reverend Dr John Hall, said: ‘Remembering the physical and mental suffering of so many veterans, we assemble today to give thanks to almighty God for Combat Stress, founded ninety years ago this day, and for its staff and volunteers, and to pray for the healing and comfort of all those who suffer stress following the trauma of combat.’
