 COMBINED OPERATIONS

Memorial donations of around 27,500 funded construction, dedication and routine ground maintenance in perpetuity.

  Donate here to a small contingency fund to repair and maintain the memorial structures as and when required.
 


Donate to the Upkeep of the Combined Ops Memorial.

The Combined Operations Memorial Fund

The Combined Operations Memorial shortly after the dedication ceremony in July 2013.

The memorial construction, dedication ceremony and 'in perpetuity routine maintenance' (grass cutting, weeding, grouting etc) have been fully funded from public donations of around 27,500. Links to all this information can be found on the Memorial Index Page.

The Memorial Fund now enters it's third iteration; 1) Construction & Dedication Ceremony, 2) Maintenance & Development and now 3) a Contingency Fund to cover future repairs to the memorial fabric such as the mosaic, information board and dedication plaque. It's been an amazing collective effort over the best part of 20 years. Thank you!
