In memory 15 year old bayoneted in World War 1

We held our first workshop connected with Stourhead Remembers, a project commemorating through sculpture the effect of World War 1 on the community in Wiltshire. We invited participants to offer drawings or words summing up the war, especially those connected with people's own families. One written contribution is shown above. The boy survived the war as prisoner of the Germans despite being bayoneted through the head.

 Below: Paul and helpers made a maquette of a battle scene. Participants also made small bikes. These will be placed on the giant bike which we will erect shortly in memory of Ebenezer Stone who made his own bike before the war but lost both legs during the conflict. More about this project on the page above.
