Hi,

 

For anyone that is interested I have just picked up on local media that the 19,240 figurines will be on display at Bristol Cathedral from 11th - 18th Nov.

Mmm.  A group of shrouds that represents the number of men killed on the 1st day will be on display on the 100th anniversary of the 135th - 141st days of the battle.

Good point Ray.  God forbid that they didn't sell, that would suggest that the idea was in some way flawed.

BBC article

 

'Project manager, Mel Bradley said: "It had a huge impact on Exeter and has the potential to be even bigger in Bristol."

Shrouds of the Somme has been shortlisted for a Remember WW1 award, with the results to be announced on 2 November.'
