Polish Armed Forces War Memorial
On 19th September 2009 in the grounds of the National Memorial Arboretum Lichfield Staffordshire a beautiful Bronze Memorial Statue was unveiled by His Royal Highness The Duke of Kent and Her Excellency Barbara Tuge-Ericinska the Republic of Poland Ambassador to the United Kingdom.
This Memorial is dedicated to the Polish Armed Forces (Army, Navy, Air force and Resistance Fighters) that gave their lives fighting in World War II.
Whilst this was very much a National Appeal to raise the required funds, ’Life for a Life’ Memorial Forests made substantial donations without which the construction of this worthy and long awaited War Memorial would have met with considerable costly delays.
The large number of Polish People that now reside in the United Kingdom now have a lasting token of grateful thanks and recognition of the sacrifices given by all Polish People from the citizens of Great Britain and a dedicated Memorial site to visit to remember their fallen.
