Around 300 guests are expected to attend the ceremony at Still Water memorial, which has been designed by Alison Wilding and Adam Kershaw. The event will be hosted by Minister for Defence People and Veterans, the Rt Hon Tobias Ellwood MP, who has led the delivery of the Memorial and whose brother was killed in the 2002 Bali bombing. The ceremony will be conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury and will include a minute’s silence and a lone piper. The Prince of Wales will say a few words during the ceremony and Her Royal Highness will lay a small floral tribute. The Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, Boris Johnson, is also expected to attend.
