Garden of Honour
Creating a new memorial will provide the public space to pay their respects, and it will serve as a permanent reminder of the dedication, bravery and sacrifice made by our Armed Forces every day.
The Garden of Honour is situated in the Royal British Legion Village, Aylesford, Kent.
