Armed forces’ charity PTSD Resolution has launched an online ‘memorial wall’ for relatives to remember veterans of the UK services in all wars who died without a known grave.
Colonel Tony Gauvain (Retired), chairman of PTSD Resolution, whose father was killed in action in Singapore in 1942, says:
“We launched on VJ Day, August 15th, which marks the day when Imperial Japan surrendered in World War II, bringing the war to an end. The memorial wall initiative serves as a reminder of all those people who were killed in action and reported as missing presumed dead, and who do not have any gravestone by which to honour their memory.
“PTSD Resolution is proud to launch this online Memorial Wall for those wishing to remember, and by doing so, to support the recovery of the mental health of veterans and reservists who have survived and also family members who may be affected.”
