On the 3rd of October 2018 members of the British Nuclear Community will gather together at the National Memorial Arboretum in Alrewas to witness the unveiling of the final phase of the British Nuclear Test Veterans memorial.
Under the Nuclear Community Charity Fund’s Remembrance project two new wings are to be incorporated into the memorial, these wings have marble plaques mounted on them mirroring the main memorial. They depict the sites of the nuclear tests that British Service Personnel were involved in.
There are also areas on the rear of the new stones for brass remembrance plaques to be mounted. Initially, the plaques recovered from the old benches will be mounted but nuclear community members can have a veteran remembered with their own plaque.
For enquiries regarding plaques please contact “NCCF Remembrance, PO Box 8244, Castle Donington, DE74 2BY.”
Guests should arrive from 1130 and the ceremony will commence after 12:00 hours. Following the ceremony afternoon tea will be served in the Marquee. We anticipate the event will be completed by 16:00 hours.
The dedication event is free to attend but the Afternoon Tea and reception, which is also free, requires pre-registration. Please reserve your place by contacting us:
