WW1 Tommy

Ghostly figures of First World War soldiers have appeared across the UK as part of an art installation marking the centenary of the end of the First World War. The campaign aims to raise at least £15 million for armed forces and mental health charities.

The six foot high Tommies are part of a nationwide art installation called ‘There But Not There’. The campaign is led by former Chief of the General Staff, Lord Dannatt and supported by Birdsong novelist, Sebastian Faulks. It is run by the charity Remembered, which aims to educate all generations about why they so many made the ultimate sacrifice, and to raise funds to help heal those suffering from the hidden wounds of war.

Now the WW1 commemorations are over, a decision awaits as to where our Minal Tommy should be placed after his position in the churchyard.  Any ideas?
