Armed Forces Memorial
A memorial at the
National Memorial Arboretum
We are pleased to share that the ‘Mesothelioma UK – Supporting our Armed Forces’ project has succesfully raised funds to build a memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum.
This new memorial will honour those who have served in the Armed Forces and have lost their battle against mesothelioma.
The memorial concept depicts building blocks of life, engraved with information about mesothelioma, asbestos and our Armed Forces.
Follow us on social media for information on when the memorial will be unveiled.
Thank you to all those who contributed to this memorial, please take a look at our Tribute Wall to see our appreciation for our donors.
It is an honour and privilege to be an Ambassador for Mesothelioma UK, especially as my late wife and I gave most of our working lives to Crown and Country before she died of mesothelioma in 2012. This memorial will provide an opportunity for families and loved ones to pay tribute to their fallen and I commend the project to you all.
I am urging all those who have lost a loved one to this terrible disease to contribute to this unique memorial – as a tribute to their loved ones and to those who have cared for them during their illness.
Brian Wallis, veteran and Mesothelioma UK Ambassador
