Recently Captain Barry Thompson, Deputy Warden of the Auckland Branch, visited the memorial Arboretum at Alrewas, north east of Birmingham

The maritime section of the arboretum is a wood planted with oaks: one tree for every Allied ship lost in WW2. The wood is known as The Merchant Navy Convoy. In the centre of this wood is a small clearing with a number of benches, including the one gifted by the New Zealand Company of Master Mariners.

Barry reports that the bench looked resplendent and is well placed in that locality.
