August: National Memorial Arboretum

The National Memorial Arboretum near Lichfield is the UK's national site of remembrance.  Dougie  is remembered on the Armed Forces and Afghan Memorials along with Sergeant Amer and other Coldstream Guards. I visited last week and want to share the photographs.

We would love to hear from you if you know of any soldier (whether current or past), family member or any project that might benefit from our help.
