I remember hearing about this years ago but thought it ended up binned. I had no idea that was actually being built. Wheres all those sculptures going to go, there not in the aerial view. Its getting opened next Friday by HRH herself, really hope they put it on the tv live, but so far looks like it wont even get a mention past 'brief 4th story on news 24'.
Its definatly a well made and decent memorial by the looks of it so far.
I have 2 close friends who are on the memorial, I will be taking my wife and children to see the memorial next month. One killed in action (Iraq),one took his own life as a result of the Bosnia conflict.
Thats a question, does this memorial include those who took their own life as part of PTSD? I am thinking of the Falklands conflict mainly, where i have heard more serviceman took their life after the conflict than during.
I know that those killed on duty are on the memorial, while those who died in service (illness etc...) are on the Roll of Honour at The Chapel of the Royal Hospital Chelsea. I thought that those who took their own life may just be on the ROH?? But then I know a family friend who died in a car crash on his way to work and that is classed as being on duty at the time and he is on the Memorial wall.
