Street selling

Post by TcfL » Tue 18 Dec, 2018 9:36 am

Walking through Hertford yesterday and came across a male selling 'The Veteran's Journey'. He was displaying a photograph badge and I mistakenly assumed it related to a Forces charity. Cost £3. When I finally arrive home and read it could find no reference to the funds raised going for any work towards ex-Forces personnel and no charity number on the magazine. Feel rather foolish as I am usually so careful to ensure I recognise the charity BEFORE I part with my money. If you go online you will find some references to the publisher of this 'periodical'.

It happens to the best of us! I foolishly used to buy from those Nottingham knockers types and still find it difficult to turn them away.

However, was it this guy doing the selling?

As he claims to have stopped doing it according to that site!

In the article you post (Aug 18) it shows that the publication is Issue 1 (FREE MERCH with every issue!) and that is the same one they are pushing. However the vendor I met is not one of those shown.
