Chamber of Feoffees buys a life-size silhouette to remember local people who fell in The Great War
Colyton Chamber of Feoffees has purchased one of the ‘Silent Soldiers’ life size silhouettes to commemorate those from the town who fell in The Great War.
Tony Hibberd, the organisation’s deputy chairman said: “The Chamber of Feoffees is proud to support this very worthwhile ‘there but not there’ Tommy campaign by the charity Remembered to commemorate the fallen from the First World War.
“As we approach the centenary of the Armistice we hope this will also assist in promoting the efforts of other local organisations here in Colyton to honour and remember all those from the parish who gave their lives and also to explain the impact of the ‘war to end all wars’ on the daily lives of those working and living here on the home front and to the changes this wrought in the community.”
The silhouette has been placed beside the War Memorial.
