St. Michael's Branch


The Overseas Branch of the

Royal Air Force Police Association



The RAF Police Memorial is located at the National Memorial Arboretum, Alrewas, Staffordshire, and is is funded solely by donations. Following an appeal, plus a generous grant from the National Lottery, work was completed in 2007 with the Dedication Parade being held on 23rd June that year. The Memorial is “two sided”, the front being dedicated to the serving RAF Police with the reverse being dedicated to “Those Who Served”.

Two parades are held at the memorial each year. A "snowdrop" parade each March in conjunction with the RMPA and an annual parade of Re-Dedication on 23rd June.

In 2015 work was completed on the construction of a paved area around the Memorial providing spaces for engraved granite stones to be placed by those who wish to honour the memory of deceased members of the RAF Police “family”. A larger granite “Queen’s“ stone has been placed at the memorial end of the paved area engraved with the words “IN LOVING MEMORY”.



The Royal Air Force Police Association now makes an annual donation to the Memorial Fund at a per capita rate. However this alone will not be sufficient to maintain the memorial in perpetuity and other donations are essential.

For further information on how to make a donation to the Memorial Fund and/or to purchase an engraved Memorial Stone please contact the Branch Secretary.
