In 2019 the NCCF announced we were taking orders for brass plaque dedications which we would pay the cost of fixing to the BNTVA memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum, Alrewas.

Orders for the plaques proved very popular and were received well into this year. We sent the manufacturing order in at the end of February and took delivery of the plaques in March. After checking each plaque they were delivered to our stonemason, who was to visit the NMA and cut them into the rear of the memorial stones. Within a week we were in Lockdown, the NMA was closed and the project suspended until late June when contractors were allowed back on to the site.

We hoped to be able to have the plaques on the memorial in good time for the annual NAVAD which takes place every 3rd of October however, an issue arose which prevented this.

We are conscious the delay is upsetting but hopefully, the matter will soon be resolved and we look forward to being able to confirm the installation.
