Today the 15th of August 2012 a Hiroshma memorial stone was placed in Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire.
Among those present were former prisoners of war in the Far East, as well as Japanese veterans.
Former prisoner of war of the Japanese George Reynolds, 94, said: “The monument is important as something to remember all those Japanese and British soldiers who died in fighting.
“The two sides were enemies but not now, and this [memorial] is a good idea to bring people together in harmony, not hate.”
Forgive the sins of the fathers.
