On Friday the 17th of May the Duke of Wellington Memorial Unveiling Ceremony was held in Halifax, the ceremony was a great success and We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who donated to the Memorial Appeal and enabled us to reach our £240,000 target. Every supporter has enabled us to honour the service and achievements of all soldiers who served with the Regiment. The statue will also remember the ultimate sacrifice many of our soldiers made, and leave a permanent, national legacy to inform generations to come.
