New war memorial for Island?

The Isle of Man should consider erecting a new war memorial, to honour those who have died in conflicts since the Second World War.

The Royal British Legion has expresed concern that 32 Manx names will be added to the new Armed Forces War Memorial in Lichfield, but the servicemen won't be honoured here.

Legion spokesman Major Charles Wilson says adding names to existing memorials is not appropriate, and the Isle of Man should do more to recognise those who have given their lives in recent conflicts.

He says the time is right for a new approach (audio file attached):
