National Memorial Arboretum "honoured" to host service

The chief executive of the National Memorial Arboretum in Alrewas, Staffordshire, has described hosting today's service as an "honour".

“The Remembrance period is of course a particularly busy time for the Arboretum, but this year, with Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday coinciding, our annual Service of Remembrance had to be on a much larger scale than usual.

“We are honoured to host such an important event and would like to thank everyone who attended, took part in or watched the Service and paid their respects to our fallen Service men and women.”

– Charlie Bagot Jewitt, the Arboretum’s chief executive
