The British Organisation for People of Asian Origin (BOPA), hosted a fabulous commemorative event at the National Memorial Arboretum on 16 October.

The event celebrated the contribution made by Asian members of the Commonwealth to the British Armed Forces during the First World War, and conflicts since, commemorating the sacrifices that were made during those conflicts.

An audience drawn from all walks of society, faiths and cultures, and especially youth groups were gathered to celebrate and commemorate that contribution made.

Chartered Certified Accountants; and Mr Ravinder Sandhu, Chief Executive of Castles Estate Agents in Coventry, took the opportunity to show their public support by signing the Armed Forces Covenant. All three Covenants were witnessed and signed by Brigadier Graeme Fraser MBE ADC RM, Naval Regional Commander (Wales & Western England).
