National Memorial Arboretum Alrewas
I am delighted on behalf of our Association to confirm that the Met Branch Memorial Plaque is now in place as a part of the Fleet Air Arm Memorial.
Your generous donations allowed us to pay our share of the future maintenance of the monument and to have the plaque manufactured and placed in position.
Your plaque is located Starboard Side of the monument in the Bridge area as we feel that was the location of most onboard Carrier Met Offices.
I trust that it will be a lasting reminder for the future.
Arthur (Charlie) Charles
The Memorial is dedicated to those servicemen who died whilst serving their country since the end of the Second World War.
