The trust is working to erect a memorial in a public place in central Reading, to the men and women of the Berkshire Yeomonary (past, present and future), the 416 who gave their lives in the wars of the 20th century and to Trooper Potts VC who won his VC at Gallipoli.

At November 14 the Trust has raised the £147,000 required to erect the memorial and Roll of Honour during 2015. The funds have been contributed by businesses from around Reading, Grant Bodies from Berkshire and individuals even in the USA ( the sons of David Niven). Target to dedicate on 4 October 2015. We continue to fundraise cover annual maintenance costs.

Educational Outreach to local schools and colleges continues.
