I purchased a stone on the first phase


I purchased a stone on the first phase of the Veterans Walk to commemorate my 24 year military service career, I’m from Durham and was immediately interested when the project was first mentioned and really impressed by all the hard work and effort put in by Tom and Rob. My granite stone may not have any significance to anyone who doesn’t know me but it means a huge amount to be able to recognise and commemorate my service in the British Army from 1976 to when I retired in 2000. I look forward to seeing the project and the Veterans Walk continue to grow and hope more servicemen and woman take the opportunity to purchase a stone or for family members to remember service of a loved one or other family member.

You should be proud of the work you have done

Tom / Rob , You should be proud of the work you have done, I and my family and countless other families across this great city owe you a massive debt of gratitude. I have visited battlefields across the world and feel proud that my boys service can be recorded in this way. If you ever need my support with anything then you only have to ask.

Thank you for the update can’t wait to see it all finished. Kind regards

Brilliant idea

Hi Tom /Rob,

 How many still serving personnel are getting these? I think it’s a brilliant idea and even though I’m buying it myself I will be extremely honoured and proud to have one of these! Kind regards Chris
