Hundreds of veterans who witnessed nuclear tests in the 1950s have joined one of the largest compensation claims against the Ministry of Defence.
It goes back to the height of the Cold War in the 1950s, when thousands of British and New Zealand servicemen were sent to the South Pacific to witness the tests.
Some of these veterans say that the radiation they were exposed to during these tests has resulted in serious illness, including cancer.
Seven hundred of them are now seeking compensation. The deadline to join the mass action is Monday 3 March 2008.
