"The efforts of military contribution to both World Wars by African and Caribbean armed forces have for too long remained overlooked and unheralded. This memorial is correcting that omission and giving justice and dignity to the 100’s of 1000s of African and Caribbean service men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for the United Kingdom" Jak Beula – Chair, Nubian Jak Community Trust
The Nubian Jak Community Trust has responded to the needs of not only the citizens of African and Caribbean origin but all cultures living together in the United Kingdom. Through this initiative the generic population of the UK is now able to know, acknowledge, and appreciate the role that people from Africa and The Caribbean played in Britain’s victory over it’s enemies in the First and Second World Wars. Nubian Jak Community Trust was founded by Jak Beula and is responsible for the award winning “edutainment” board game series “Nubian Jak”. This trade mark also includes a Harper Collins (NY) commissioned Book of World Facts.
The African and Caribbean Commonwealth War Memorial is remembering and commemorating the people from the countries in Africa and the Caribbean who volunteered for armed service alongside the British and Allied Forces duringWWI and WWII. They were in the WAAF (Women’s Auxiliary Air Force), the ATS(Auxiliary Territorial Service); the RWAFF (Royal West African Frontier Force), the 81st and 82nd West African Divisions, the KAR (Kings African Rifles), the BWIR (British West Indies Regiment), among other forces and regiments. A significant number played key roles in the Royal Air Force and the Royal Canadian Air Force as fighter pilots, bomb aimers, air gunners, as well as being ground staff and administrators; they also served in the Royal Engineers. See also list of regiments and troops. Thousands were directly involved in WWII's most dangerous service – the Merchant Navy. At least 70% of naval ships world-wide at that time were in Caribbean waters. These combatants took part in major campaigns and saw action not only close to home on the African Continent and the Caribbean, these war veterans saw action in Palestine, Burma, Jordan, Iraq, Egypt, France, and Italy; many also joined the civilian war effort in the United States.
