MEMORIAL PROJECT- CURRENT SITUATION
The British memorial for the victims of the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami was opened on 6th July 2011at the Natural History Museum in a ceremony attended by His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales and Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Cornwall. The 115-tonne 3.7-metre single granite monolith is in the Museum’s Darwin Centre Courtyard and is open to the public.
The Memorial is the result of campaigning by Tsunami Support UK and was made possible thanks to a large grant from the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), some donations and an extraordinary amount of help given ex gratis.
The Commemorative Memorial Book that records the genesis, design and final production and the opening of the Tsunami Memorial at the Natural History Museum is now available. Click on the following link to see an extract. Contact Roger Jenman at firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain a copy.
