The cast of Testament of Youth send their 100th birthday messages to Blind Veterans UK

The cast of Testament of Youth has sent Blind Veterans UK a chorus of birthday messages

 Today is the UK release of the brilliant new British film, Testament of Youth - and to mark its launch, the film's director, James Kent, along with three of its stars - Alicia Vikander, Taron Egerton and Kit Harington - have sent Blind Veterans UK this happy 100th birthday message!

Based on Vera Brittain's legendary memoirs, Testament of Youth explores how the lives of Vera and three young men in her life are forever changed by the outbreak of World War I. Blind Veterans UK has two keys links to the film: our second Chairman, WWI blind veteran Ian Fraser, is briefly referred to in the film, and we also trained one of the film's stars to play a soldier blinded during the war - watch out for more details in the next few weeks!
