"Unremembered" Wreath at the Cenotaph on 11/11/2018

                                       

Sheila Wright and Jacqui Whiteley pay their respects to the ‘unremembered’ men and women of World War One by laying a wreath of many colours at the war memorial on Remembrance Sunday, exactly 100 years since the ending of ‘the war to end all wars’. Sheila leads the Craft Group which created the wreath, drawing their inspiration for their unique design from the medal ribbons and flags of the countries of origin of the ‘unremembered’ men and women who provided support services such as cooking and cleaning, transporting food, fuel and ammunition, filling sandbags and digging trenches. Jacqui led the project in response to an appeal by the Commonwealth Heads of Government in March for specially designed wreaths for the ‘unremembered’ from many countries to be laid on Remembrance Sunday.
