Welcome to Palace Barracks Memorial Garden, these memorials stones are dedicated to some of those who have given the ultimate sacrifice while serving in the Armed Forces.

The Garden in Palace Barracks remembers some of those who have lost their lives in Northern Ireland, The Falkland Islands, Kuwait, August 1990 - July 1991, Iraq 2003, Afganistan and the United Kingdom.

The Memorial Custodian is also responsible for Felix Memorial Gardens at Royal Air Force Aldergrove

Northern Ireland

Operation BANNER – support by the Royal Navy, Army and Royal Air Force to the police and civil authorities in Northern Ireland ended at midnight, 31 July 2007 after 38 years.

The names of the UK service personnel who lost their lives during Operation Banner are listed on the Armed Forces Memorial, Staffordshire. The Memorial, which opened to the public in October 2007, remembers all those killed on duty in conflicts or on training exercises, by terrorist action or on peacekeeping missions.

Dr Richard Chartres, the Bishop of London gave a sermon during the service in which he said:

We honour the memory of those who were killed by never forgetting them and never forgetting what they were fighting for when they died." He also said "this is also an occasion for paying tribute to all those individuals and organisations who are concerned with the emotional and spiritual health of servicemen and women and who offer practical support to families. The work goes on of course among veterans as they establish their own inner peace and stability and deal with the lasting scars of war.
... Over the course of Operation Banner which lasted from 1969-2007, 763 servicemen and women were killed as a direct result of terrorism. This includes 651 Army and Royal Marine personnel; one Royal Naval Serviceman; 50 members of the former Ulster Defence Regiment and later Royal Irish Regiment; 10 members of the Territorial Army and 51 military personnel murdered outside Northern Ireland. 6,116 members of the Army and Royal Marines were wounded over the period.

Northern Ireland Prison Service

The complex and unique history of the Prison Service must be set in the context of the civil unrest in Northern Ireland over the past 30 years. In that time 29 staff have been murdered because of their employment, and many others, including their families, have been permanently or seriously injured or been subject to a prolonged physical, verbal and psychological intimidation and abuse
