The Royal British Legion in Wales says it working with both the Welsh Government and local health boards to ensure that ex-soldiers who have lost limbs while on active service get the treatment they deserve.
One ex-serviceman Peter Bowker of Connahs Quay, whose leg was amputated below the knee, says that after leaving the army he struggled to get fa new prosthetic limb as his local health authority did not have the cash.
Recently the Royal British Legion wrote to a group of Welsh MPs saying there was a need to ensure veterans in Wales are able to make use of their right to priority access to medical treatment as they do in England.
The mother of a soldier killed in Afghanistan has helped launch this year's Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.
Cathryn Griffiths, whose son Guardsman Jamie Shadrake died in August, attended the launch of the appeal at Flint High School, along with Olympic Gold Medallist Jade Jones.
Ms Griffiths said: "The Legion provides immediate support and life-long care to Armed Forces families in need.
"The Poppy Appeal makes it possible for the Legion to help Armed Forces families with £1.7million every week in direct welfare support - that's £90 million each year, answering more than 165,000 calls for help."
