Too Old To Be Insured

My thanks to a loyal reader who pointed me in the direction of some Nanny insurance nonsense that prevented ex Royal Navy Albert 'Dusty' Miller (who served his country with distinction in World War Two) from acting as the Royal British Legion parade marshal (a role he has carried out for the last 38 years).

Seemingly he is now deemed to be "too old" to be insured!

That is always the way with insurance companies, they never like putting themselves at risk of "paying out". Given that Mr Miller put himself at considerable risk during his wartime service, one would have thought an exception could have been made .

Mr Miller was quoted by the Express:
"They came up to me and said, 'I've got a bit of bad news for you'. "At first I thought somebody had died and it was going to be another funeral. Then they told me HQ insisted I had to stand down as parade marshal. 

I said I was still fit and able, but they said it's because of insurance and that I should have stood down when I was 85.

It hit me like a ton of bricks. 

I was that disgusted I didn't know what to say. 

I've been a marshal for the Merseyside and West Lancs branch for 38 years. I never even knew standard-bearers had to be insured.
Insurance is very much a one way street when it comes to risk!

    ferking barstewards!

  2. I can barely contain my anger at this blatant piece of ageism. If it wasn't for the sacrifice made by Mr Miller, and many like him, those jerks who have made this decision might well not exist! These jobsworths should hang their heads in shame! They aren't fit to wipe Mr Miller's backside!

    1. David,

      Very well said!!
