On 15 August, to celebrate the 65th anniversary of the end of the war in the Pacific, there will be a number of events and activities across the UK.
At the National Memorial Arboretum the Malayan Volunteers Group will hold a service of commemoration at 2.00pm.
The National Memorial Arboretum is the UK’s year-round centre of Remembrance, a living and lasting memorial to commemorate and celebrate:
•Those who have given their lives in the service of their country,
•All who have served and those who have suffered as a result of conflict,
•Others who for specific or appropriate reasons are commemorated on the site.
The Arboretum is a unique haven of peace, contemplation and hope for the future. It consists of 150 acres of wooded parkland within the National Forest in Staffordshire where visitors can both enjoy and learn about the trees and their surroundings, and reflect upon their special symbolism.
