Lovely memorial Lee, that guy in the wheelchairs going to be dissapointed when he gets to the stairs tho...

LOL, that guy in the wheelchair is my mate John, he's the one who drives us all over the place, the guy pushing him is my dad, he used to come out with us before he moved away. Theres actually a spiral pathway that goes round the whole memorial, takes forever to get up it...theres no way most wheelchair users could do it themselves though. Its a beautiful memorial though, 2 curved outta walls and two straight inner walls, I love going there. And theres about 200 smaller memorials over acres of land to all the regiments of the army, navy and RAF.

And to have your friend and Dad in there, looks just right.
