Basra Wall images added

08th June 2010
The original wall was built, as the Venerable Stephen Robbins, chaplain general to the forces, recalled, by members of the Royal Engineers on their own initiative and in their own time, often in darkness after a day's work. Today in a ceremony as solemn as Remembrance Day, that wall, carefully dismantled, shipped back, rebuilt and encased in a tomb of red granite like some medieval relic, was rededicated at the National Memorial Arboretum near Lichfield.
