RAFA Remembrance Garden, National Memorial Arboretum
The first national Remembrance Garden in memory of all those who have served in the RAF and Commonwealth air forces was opened by HRH The Princess Royal on 28 September 2009.

The inspiration for the Remembrance Garden comes from the RAFA's dedication, the last line of which is "We will remember them". The central feature of the 50 metre-long garden is the RAFA emblem, a magnificent stainless steel eagle sitting on top of a globe (SK1814 : Winston, RAFA Remembrance Garden). The eagle, named Winston, is made up of over 1000 hand-forged feathers and is surrounded by a segmented RAF roundel separated into four quarters to depict the RAF Association at the bheart of RAF welfare.
