Royal Navy legend Albert ‘Dusty’ Miller served his country with distinction in World War Two.

He earned countless medals and recognition for his bravery, first in the Atlantic convoys and later as a submariner in the Burma campaign.

But the 89-year-old, who has been a parade marshal for the Royal British Legion for nearly 40 years, has now been told he can no longer represent veterans – because he’s too old.

Senior officials broke the news to Mr Miller shortly before last week’s Rememberance Day parade, claiming he was ‘too old to be insured’
