Names of dead carved on memorial (UK)

Breaking News

The work of carving the names of 67 service personnel killed in service during 2008 is beginning at the Armed Forces Memorial in Alrewas, Staffs.

It will take a single stonemason three weeks to carve the names on the walls at the National Memorial Arboretum.

The engraving process, which began at 0600 BST, takes place every spring.

Prince William visited the memorial on Friday and became patron of an appeal which aims to raise £8m for the site.
