Tribute paid to WW1 fallen at Sandhurst

The RLC has paid tribute to the fallen of WW1 by taking a silhouette soldier installation to the chapel at RMA Sandhurst in remembrance.

‘Remembered’ is a dynamic new charity inspired by the There But Not There installation in Penshurst Church in Kent held over the Remembrance period of 2016 where 51 transparent military figures were seated in remembrance.

The charity aims to place a representative figure for every name on local war memorials around the country, into their place of worship, their school, their workplace or wherever their absence was keenly felt, during the centenary commemoration of the end of the 1914-1918 First World War.

It aims to educate all generations, particularly today’s younger generation, born nearly 100 years after the outbreak of WW1, to understand what led to the deaths of 888,246 British and Commonwealth service personnel.

Funds raised from the sale of the charity’s commemorative ‘Tommy’, made by veterans at Royal British Legion Industries will go to support The Royal Foundation’s Armed Forces Programmes, The Commonwealth War Graves Foundation, Walking With The Wounded, Combat Stress, Help for Heroes and Project Equinox by Plymouth University.
