Howard Lake | 15 December 2004 | News Defence and aerospace company BAE Systems has donated £100,000 to the Armed Forces Memorial Appeal and has pledged to donate a further £100,000 to the Appeal over the next two years.The Appeal is raising funds to provide a fitting memorial of national significance to recognise not only those members of the Armed Forces killed in conflict but also the many servicemen and women who have given their lives while on duty and those killed by terrorist action. Following consultation with the Services and ex-Service community it was concluded that the new Armed Forces Memorial should be constructed at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire. The National Memorial Arboretum is a 150 acre site which was opened in 2001. It is now under the control of The Royal British Legion and it is envisaged that the Arboretum will become a place of national importance for Remembrance and commemoration throughout the year.
