“THERE BUT NOT THERE”
Ghostly Tommies rise up in remembrance:

Silhouettes of 6ft tall WWI soldiers emerge to mark 100 years since the end of the 1st world war
This is a defining centenary commemoration of the end of the 1914-1918 war, installed where the men and women came from across the country, back in the communities they left behind.

This project aims to Commemorate, Educate and Heal – the three aims of our charity.

Commemorate those who died in the First World War through installations of silhouettes wherever there is a Roll of Honour.

This Is to Educate all generations, particularly today’s younger generation, born nearly 100 years after the outbreak of WW1, to understand what led to the deaths of 888,246 British and Commonwealth service personnel.

Heal today’s veterans who are suffering from the mental and physical wounds of their service by raising substantial funds through sales of our Tommies.
Rotary Club of Bath wishes to buy a Tommy for the city . It has been agreed that it will be installed in the Parade Gardens.

 

Your donation and the funds raised through the purchase of the Tommy for Bath will contribute to the work of the following charities:
1. The Royal Foundation
2. Walking With The Wounded
3. Combat Stress
4. Help for Heroes
5. Project Equinox: Housing Veterans and Medical Students
6. Commonwealth War Graves Foundation

My grandad, was lucky enough to come back. This is to remember to futility of war, and to the lost generation we all suffered.
