The first of September saw the British Army Flying Memorial unveiled in a dedication service. The memorial at the museum in Middle Wallop is dedicated to all those who have died in the service of British Army Flying
Mountjoy started building works on the memorial in July, installing 39 graphic concrete panels which display 5127 names. Each panel was individually dropped in and once in situ they were rendered. Grass seed has been sewn in the mound surrounding the memorial to complete the landscaping works.
The location for the memorial on the museum site was chosen so that on Remembrance Day the sun will rise magnificently above the structure.
The service of dedication was attended by the project team at Hampshire County Council and The Museum of Army Flying, families of the fallen, veterans, the Mayor and Mayoress of Test Valley and other senior guests including servicemen and financial supporters of the project. The event also coincided with the 60th anniversary of the Army Air Corps (AAC). A historic aircraft flight flypast took place at the end of the service.
