Pictures: The Duchess of Cornwall promotes SmartWater campaign

Individuals and organisations which look after war memorials are being encouraged to apply for free "SmartWater" kits.

A unique traceable liquid, which is painted onto the memorials, "SmartWater" is virtually impossible to remove - and can even withstand burning and sand blasting.

Today, the Duchess of Cornwall helped to protect the Royal Artillery Memorial on Hyde Park Corner, by applying the fluid with a paint brush.
