Sir John Major’s Comments at the National Memorial Arboretum – 10 July 2023

The comments made by Sir John Major at the National Memorial Arboretum on 10 July 2023.

I did not know quite what to expect when I arrived at the National Memorial Arboretum – except in the most general of senses. Moving across this 150-acre site, one is taken in, not only by its sheer scale and all it represents, but also by the obvious love and attention lavished upon it by all those who care for its upkeep throughout the year.

It is impossible not to be moved by a visit to the National Memorial Arboretum, and I found my own visit immensely poignant and reflective – yet also inspiring. It truly is the most remarkable place.
