    Story

    World War One Tommy for Thetford

    With this year marking the hundredth anniversary of the end of WWI, Cllr Jenny Hollis and myself (Sue MacDonald) thought that bringing a Tommy silhouette to Thetford would be a fitting way for our town to remember the sacrifices made by the whole nation, but especially those 117 local men who died doing their duty and those who came home but lived with the terrible memories for the rest of their lives. Below is some infomation regarding the charity behind ‘Tommys’ and a link to the website.

    There But Not There is the 2018 Armistice project for the charity Remembered

    Remembered aims to:

    Inspire communities to purchase and install our silhouettes of their local Fallen wherever they are listed for the Armistice Period, 2018, and/or to buy our 6’ Tommy figure for use in a public space at any time through 2018

    Educate all generations about why they made the ultimate sacrifice

    Raise very substantial funds to help heal those suffering from the hidden wounds of war.
