St Dunstan's anniversary

One anniversary that the Speaker of the House of Commons did not mention this week was that of the Blind Veterans charity which was founded as St Dunstan's by Sir Arthur Pearson in 1915. He believed that no one who has served our country should battle blindness alone.

Incidentally, I see that the veneration of St Dunstan goes back a long way, since Lanfranc, William the Conqueror's Archbishop of Canterbury, was a devotee.
