Warrant Officer Colin Wall of the Royal Military Police was killed in Iraq in 2003. The six million GBP memorial, built in the grounds of The National Memorial Arboretum, is due to be opened by HM The Queen today, seven years after the initial idea by the ministry of defence. The memorial honors people killed on duty or as a result of terrorist action since the end of World War II. So far over 15,000 names have been carved in the Portland stone with room for more.
