Eric Fletcher Waters memorialAccording to H24Notizie website, Roger Waters has approved a monument to the memory of his father.

The memorial, a marble obelisk 3 metres high, has - the report states - already got the OK from Roger Waters, along with "his artistic director" Sean Evans. It will be a gift that the municipality of Aprilia will make Waters, whose father died during the fierce fighting after the landing at Anzio on February 18, 1944. Lieutenant Eric Fletcher Waters lost his life in the area of Riserva Nuova, and his body has never been found.

They continue that, 70 years after the death of his father, on February 18th, 2014, Waters will go to Aprilia and meet the directors and students of Rosselli and Meucci University, and then will go to Anzio to receive honorary citizenship.

The project obelisk was created by a graphic design studio in Ascoli Piceno. The plaque is said to read: "In memory of Eric Fletcher Waters (December 12, 1914 - February 18, 1944) died here, and all the others who are in unmarked graves." Finally, a phrase taken from Two Suns in the Sunset, from The Final Cut: "Ashes and diamonds, foe and friend, we were all equal in the end".

UPDATE: The following video has appeared now, specifically about the citizenship event:
