The click tick list – The National Memorial Arboretum


I’m not exactly sure why I put this on the list. I think it was the idea of trees.

What I didn’t understand was the power of memorials and trees together. This is a worthy place to visit and celebrate the bravery and dedication of members of the armed forces that are remembered here.




I tread carefully when I wandered. I saw many visitors who I just knew from looking at them were here to visit a loved one or many loved ones. Neither Gav’s family or mine have a military connection but I felt the importance of remembering and paying tribute.

And planting trees to help celebrate, a living memorial is an inspired idea.
