Memorial mission

Any readers who fancy themselves with a camera can help me.

Clean2018 is a campaign which I am embarked upon to hopefully secure government funding for the renovation – where necessary – of Britain’s war memorials Details can be found at, but I need to illustrate the site with photographs of run-down, overgrown, graffiti-covered, crumbling or unreadable memorials.

Although many war memorials are in good shape thanks to the efforts of councils and enthusiasts, many others suffer this kind of neglect.

Photographs may be emailed to me at and it would be helpful if details about the location, the date on which the shot was taken and the name of the photographer could be included, the latter to provide a credit if and when the picture is used.
