The Ribbon of Poppies is set to expand next year and we are working with the Ancre Somme Association to create a Charity that will not only look to create "Living Memorials" but also to educate young people about the work of the Armed Forces. As we move forward into 2019 there will be different options or combinations of...
- Ribbon of Poppies - the original "carpet of crimson" is open to all
- Garden of Remembrance - would suit small public buildings, various wildflowers with a Remembrance theme
- Fields of Remembrance - larger areas turned into wildflower "memorial meadows"
- Routes of Remembrance - a Ribbon of Poppies along road and rail routes
- Cairn of Remembrance - a stone based memorial project

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.
