National Memorial Arboretum 2018

We were invited to the National Memorial Arboretum today to take part in the celebrations to commemorate the Commonwealth contribution to the British Armed Forces.

What should we take away from the celebrations today?

Do you know anyone who was part of the Commonwealth contribution?
