On the 16th of July at 11am in the Gardens of Remebrance at RAF Waddington we will be unveiling Busters Memorial. Buster being the dog that saved a 1000 lives, an RAF Police Explosive Search Dog.
Visitors will be welcome, however to ensure access, we require details of those attending name/address and vehicle registration details. Those attending will also require photographic ID.
Once the event is concluded the team hope to reveal the plans by the Sculptor for the National Military Working Dogs Memorial and we hope to also have information on support from a major charity who may be supporting the Memorial.
This image shows a draft of the central temple which will be surrounded by four dog memorials, representing the three branches of the Armed Services and a fourth plinth for mascot dogs.

On Friday 17th of June we held a short Memorial Service for Canadian Soldier Private George Burchell, who was killed near the Crooked Billet Roundabout in Iver Heath, in the last year of WW1.
It was held at the Totem Pole on the roundabout, an area rich with Canadian links, from the founders of the Hudson Bay Company and many more.
We hope to place a small memorial there before the Centenary of his death. Private Burchell was based in Black Park with the Canadian Forestry Corps and now lays to rest in St Margarets Church in Iver Heath. The local Scout group have been honouring him every year at Remembrance since 2007.

A lovely chat with the team at Avro Heritage the other day trying to locate their fallen colleagues family & friends (and colleagues) in the 1956 crash at Heathrow and today with the metal works who is looking at designs for the memorial in a very distinctive shape.
Just waiting to hear back now from the Archbishops Office, watch this space...
