A monument dedicated to past, present and future navy personnel has been unveiled in the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire.

It is made up of several coloured glass panels and a lone figure whose head is bowed in respect. It is hoped that it will serve as a special place for people to remember their comrades and loved ones.
