This could mean a mention on a Cenotaph, a bench, a plaque, a Church window, or anything else which is a mark of Remembrance to those lost in action.

If you have any of the above in your area, please photograph it and send the details to the SAMA 82 office. 

We will then put all the information onto the website so that if you are visiting a new place you will be able, should you wish, to pay your respects.
