To commemorate members of the Polish Armed Forces killed in WWII, a major war memorial sculpted by the famous artist, Robert Sobociński, has been commissioned. Robert Sobocinski, a Polish sculptor, has exhibited in Paris, Nancy, Poznan, Strassburg, Warsaw, Hannover and Normandy.

The monument will be erected in the in National Memorial Arboretum Alrewas, Staffordshire, a site dedicated to the memory of all fallen servicemen and women from WWI, WWII and all other conflicts of the 20th century.

The unveiling is planned for September 2009, to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the outbreak of WWII.

The National Memorial Arboretum contains 130 major war memorials, yet none is dedicated to the Poles killed in WWII.

Poland fielded the 4th largest Allied army fighting Nazi tyranny in Europe. The Memorial aims to celebrate their memory and educate a new generation, both British and Polish, of the important part played by the Polish forces in this conflict. The Polish Forces served with the Allies from first day of the war until the last. Poles gave their lives on all fronts - on land, at sea, in the air, and as the members of the underground army where they distinguished themselves with courage and self-sacrifice.

This project is an initiative of the sons and daughters of those who fought and died for the freedom that we all now enjoy in Europe.

Financial support covering the major part of the expected costs for this project, has been secured in the form of a guarantee from The Association of Polish Ex-Combatants UK.

Additional funds are needed from public subscriptions.

This unique and important project is looking to secure additional active participation and sponsorship from organizations, businesses and private individuals.
