Description

Our project, as part of the national commemorative events, will help conserve and protect the nation's war memorials for the long term as well as ensuring there are skilled volunteers available to assess their condition and take steps to preserve them in the proper way.

Volunteers are essential to making this project a success. By helping to locate and record local war memorials, you will be playing a part in helping to raise awareness of the importance of the nation's war memorials.
