State pension outrage: WW2 war hero missed out on £67,000 after campaign efforts 'ignored'


This week, Ian Andexser, Chairman of the Canadian Alliance of British Pensioners, paid tribute to Vic, and his campaign work.

Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk, he said: “As we approach the annual day that the world pauses to show respect for those who have bravely fought for the liberty that we all enjoy, this historical British policy is felt most severely by the elderly veterans as their meagre pension reduces in value, year on year.

“These pensioners were never told that moving to the ‘wrong’ country was a penalty.

“Vic Williams put his life on the line in WW2 for his country, but in retirement and after moving to Canada, his efforts to get his just reward in his pension were ignored by the UK government.

“Sadly Vic didn’t live to see the end to this discrimination.”

The Canadian Alliance of British Pensioners chairman continued: “There are 23,000 pensioners living in Canada receiving less than £20 per week but I represent all 139,000 similarly ‘frozen’ who have chosen to retire to Canada.
