National memorial day

The National Memorial to Victims of Overseas Terrorism – titled Still Water – will have its dedication ceremony on May 17 at the National Memorial Aboretum near Lichfield, Staffordshire. It’s dedicated to all British victims of overseas terrorism and will stand to honour any future victims.

Tobias Ellwood, Minister for Defence People and Veterans said: “This memorial is a poignant tribute to British people killed in terrorist attacks abroad and will act as a focal point for remembrance for their loved ones and the whole country. It is a space for quiet reflection and contemplation and I hope that it will become a place where those who have been affected can come to remember. I would encourage anyone who has lost a family member in an overseas terrorist incident to apply for a place at the dedication ceremony and join this act of remembrance.”

Those wishing to attend the dedication ceremony are invited to apply for places by registering on gov.uk. People interested in attending are asked to apply by February 19. The work was completed in December 2017 and it is now open to the public.
