We are a charity whose aim is to install a befitting monument in the National Memorial Arboretum, in recognition of sacrifices and contributions made over centuries by men and women of the Caribbean who served in the British Armed Forces and the Merchant Navy. To uphold their memory, maintain links with past, present and future generations for services to Britain. To re-enforce their contributions through presentations and literature, educational programmes to schools, churches, organisations and the general public. Creating a legacy for present and future generations.
It is planed for this design to be created and installed by 2021 (designed by Sculptor Martin Jennings)
The National Memorial Arboretum, Alrewas, near Lichfield, Staffordshire is UK's Living Centre of Rememberance, which houses over 300 memorials. It is a place of peace and tranquillity for Servicemen and Servicewomen, students, veterans, and the general public. It is also a powerful reminder of those who have given their lives to ensure our freedom, which is why it is important that we also create, design and install a monument which will be a focal point of historical knowledge in recognition of the contribution of 18 British Caribbean Islands Service Personnel.
We have been allocated the plot above at the National Memorial Arboretum, next to the WW1 Sikh Memorial, where we had a launch on the 14th February 2019. Please follow this link to the summary of our launch: https://tncmc.org/index.php/tncmc-official-launch-14th-february-2019
