Project to protect war memorials

A PROJECT has been launched to combat the theft of metal from war memorials.

The War Memorials Trust and the SmartWater Foundation are asking war memorial custodians to register for the In Memoriam 2014 project, which is making SmarkWater’s state-of-the-art crime prevention liquid available free of charge to mark all war memorials in the UK.

Todmorden Civic Society chairman Paul Clarke, who is also a regional volunteer for the War Memorials Trust, said: “A theft from a war memorial is an attack on the memory of those who made the ultimate sacrifice.”
