This is probably in the wrong thread so Im sorry... Ive just returned from the National War Memorial in Staffordshire. I can quite honestly say it has been one of the most moving days I can remember for a long time. There is a solemnity about the place, coupled with a dignity that is truly overwhelming. Several old and bold were there, many with a tear in thier eye (myself included) at the effort the trust that was commissioned have put in to make the place a truly remarkable site. It isnt fully finished yet, as far as I could tell, but it really is magnificent. Both my parents were dumbstruck at the amount of plaques, trees, badges, statues etc etc that were about the place commemorating all the services and it was nice to see that the Ambulance, Police and RNLI were also remembered. I heard many people comment on the fact that it took far too long for this memorial to be built and I heartily agree with them. If there was ever a cause that should be supported then it is this one. Im not going to put any pictures up as my photography wouldnt do the place justice. A worthy day out at little or no cost apart from petrol. I would urge everyone to visit.
