You may be interested in the following from the 'War Memorials
The Trust has recently been informed of a project which
will form part of ‘14-18 NOW: WWI centenary art commissions’ which I thought you might be interested
The project is called ‘Letter to an unknown soldier’ and the idea is that members of the public will write the letter being read by the soldier in the war memorial statue at Paddington Station
These letters will all be archived, displayed on a website and will form a new type of ‘war memorial’.
The Trust has been asked, through our learning programme, to promote this project in secondary schools but the project is open to everyone.
The letters can be submitted now via the project website:
The last date letters can be submitted is 4th August 2014.
