British Legion backs protecting war memorials

War memorials in Derbyshire will be treated with anti-theft liquid in an attempt to protect them, a British Legion spokesman has said.

The War Memorials Trust is working with the SmartWater Foundation to treat
the memorials.

Royal British Legion spokesman Bernard Page said the liquid contained a code
that could be seen under UV light.

Two men were jailed in 2010 for stealing four brass plaques from the Midland
Railway War Memorial in Derby.

Just another example of why this country is going to the devil in a hand cart.
