Is the Big Tree now known officially as the Falklands Tree? It also commemorates troops killed in Northern Ireland.

Thanks Dave for the photos. I have only recently found that my two great uncles Frank and Harold Beard are commemorated there and so will travel up from Birmingham and attend a future rememberance service . It looks a beautiful spot. My family owned Beard's Outfitters at 96/98 Market Street at the time of WW1.

I served on HMS Glamorgan the last ship to be hit by an Argentine Exocet during the Falklands conflict,at the time my home address was 171 Stockport rd,
I moved to California a couple of years after the Conflict ended. I lost 14 good friends June the 12th 1982,. I just found out about the BIG TREE and think it was a brilliant idea and the fact it has to be close to my home at the time is amazing I always felt I left something behind there. thank you so much for the photo.
