Odyssey Timeship is an initiative to raise funds for disabled ex-service people in the Royal Star & Garter Home. Odyssey is looking for any and all your stories: stories that are similar or dissimilar to those our residents and their friends in the Home have to tell. The project involves submitting the stories of current- or ex-service people on or off the internet and collating them in order to store them in a time capsule for future generations to read.
