MoD criticised over memorials

Further evidence of the MoD's disregard for the military:

The mother of the last British soldier murdered in Northern Ireland has criticised the Ministry of Defence's policy on memorials.

Rita Restorick said it was unacceptable that the MoD refused to pay for plaques at trees at the National Memorial Arboretum in Lichfield, Staffordshire.

"A small sum that would only be £72,000 to put a plaque at each tree, but the families themselves are expected to provide them."

In some ways it's probably best that MoD don't procure the plaques; they'd end up with plaques that didn't last, took years to arrive and cost £7.2m.
