Family proud to take part in walk to 'special place'

Chris' name was one of the first to be hand-engraved onto the walls of the Armed Forces Memorial, soon after its completion and dedication in 2007. Since then, the Memorial has become our 'special place'.

Our family is so proud to be taking part in Walk to the Wall in Chris' name and to help raise funds for the Arboretum. Even if you have not lost someone, it is somewhere you should visit - it is awe-inspiring, uplifting and grounded in reality.

– Min Ingram, mother of killed RAF serviceman

The Senior Aircraftsman’s ten-year-old niece, Morgan, and eight-year-old nephew Ryan, will do the walk with their Grandma, which will finish at the walls of the memorial, where their uncle’s name is engraved.

The annual walk helps ensure entry to the site near Tamworth can remain free of charge.
