We are installing our last pieces at Stourhead the National Trust property in Wiltshire as part of our sculpture trail "Stourhead will never forget" commemorating the effect of World War 1 on the community..To commemorate the life of young Harry Hoare, the heir to the estate, we are creating a nursery scene in the woods. There are the sorts of toys a small boy might play with. But there are hints of his untimely death at the age of 29 in a battle at Mughair Ridge in Palestine in November 1917. He was trying to rescue the horses. the trail remains in place until November 2017 and a leaflet is available from the visitors centre.

We have floated our band at Stourhead the National Trust Garden in Wiltshire as part of our sculpture trail "Stourhead will never forget" commemorating the effect of World War 1 on the community. Concerts were organized here by Adela, Lady Hoare, chatelaine of the estate, to entertain convalescent troops from the nearby hospital at Mere.The soldiers were allowed to relax in the gardens and to boat on the lake. We also had in mind the bands that were created in all the armies near the Front. They often used bits and pieces that came to hand Below are convalescent troops on the lake at Stourhead during World War 1.
