Where our Nation remembers
ACADEMICS AND REMEMBRANCE SEMINARS
Ceremonies of Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday are increasingly significant public events, and war memorials remain a key element of the landscape of many cities, towns and villages.
The forms and practices of commemoration are however changing, incorporating formal and informal acts of Remembrance, a role for broadcast and new media, museums, physical spaces, constructed memorials, pilgrimage, tourism and heritage.
In addition, the group includes practitioners working for religious groups, the Armed Forces, education, the Mass Observation Archive, The Royal British Legion and the National Memorial Arboretum.
"As an ex-Serviceman (RAF Regiment) I was very much affected by the vision of the Basra Wall Memorial. I have lived in Australia for over 40 years & every time I hear of "one of our lads" being killed or wounded, it makes me so sad for the families & friends who have lost a loved one. I feel deeply for the mates in the units who served with these lads, It brings back memories of great mateships I had whilst in the forces. This memorial is a wonderful means of keeping all of our service people in mind. Take care lads & look out for your mates!"
