Facing the sun, the stainless steel badge catches the light fantastically
Whilst the polished red granite block is certainly imposing, it really is the highly polished stainless steel badge that provides this monument at the National Memorial Arboretum with its sense of identity.  It is this multi-pointed star that that one sees on every Fire Service Vehicle and on every Fire Service uniform.
 
Cast in a single piece, this badge weighs approximately 70kg, so we had to lift it in to place using a block and tackle.
