Memorial to Quakers' wartime service at national arboretum

A memorial recognising the wartime work by Quakers is being inaugurated at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire later.

Quakers' beliefs mean that many were unable to serve in the armed forces during wartime.

Many volunteered to serve in warzones in the Friends Ambulance Unit (FAU).

Leslie Steed, 94, from Birmingham served with the FAU during World War II.
