This Memorial gave an amazing reflection of this war that is almost forgotten.
The dark grey wall with so many service men and women etched into it was unique.

This is not to be missed. As much as we have read about this and seen pictures of it, the visit was still unexpectantly moving.

I've seen replica wall on tour, it was sobering to see the real wall. Appreciated ease of finding a name on the wall.

This is a reminder of the loss of life in that mistaken venture. The wall is quite evocative of bereavement.
