Tommy Silhouettes in the park and cemetery

Published11th October 2018

Three Tommy Silhouettes have been unveiled in Ipswich’s Christchurch Park ahead of the annual Poppy Appeal launch later this month.

Borough Councillor Alasdair Ross, a former soldier who fought in Afghanistan, was joined by Martin Combes, Ipswich branch vice-chairman of the Royal British Legion, and three local cadets for the ceremony.

Two other Tommies are “standing guard” in the town’s Old Cemetery.

Next month, the Council will be planting 18 English Oaks in the park as part of the town’s commemoration of the centenary of the World War One armistice.

Details of the Remembrance services to be held in Ipswich will be announced shortly.
