    The Lisbon Maru Memorial Project plans to erect a memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum in 2021 to the 828 British servicemen who perished in the Lisbon Maru atrocity in 1942 and the more than 200 who died later in prisoner of war camps in Japan and have since been forgotten by the world. This is a private initiative, and while it has the support of all the service associations concerned, it will rely heavily on private donations for funding.

    The Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment, because of the involvement of The Middlesex Regiment, one of its forebear Regiments, is administering the Project and collecting on behalf of all the Service organisations involved.

    Your donation will help keep alive the memory of these men who suffered so much in the cause of freedom.
