The origins of the Arboretum can be traced back to a visit to Arlington Cemetery and the National Arboretum in Washinton, DC, in 1988 by founder David Childs. He had the idea that such concepts could be introduced to the UK to provide a meaningful memorial to those who have served. David Childs was greatly supported by Group Captain sir Leonard Cheshire VC OM DSO & 2 bars, DFC, who was concerned about future Remembrance and became influential in the concept of the Arboretum. The amphithreatre of the Arboretum is dedicated to his memory
