"There is nothing we can ever do that will adequately thank those men and women who have served so bravely in our armed forces," says the Chancellor. "But what we must do is remember their heroism, their courage and their sacrifice. I believe it is vital that today's young people talk to our veterans, listen to their memories and learn the lessons from our history, and I hope every young person will have that opportunity."
