The Prime Minister has announced an extra £1m funding for an Armed Services Memorial honouring veterans who have served in conflicts including Iraq and Afghanistan.
Downing St said the Government was committed to funding the monument, which is at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire, until 2020.
The memorial commemorates over 16,000 people who have died on duty since the end of World War II.
There will be a dedication service on Monday for the 17 service personnel who died on duty in 2013.
