Touring First World War memorial bears more than one million names


By Newsdesk Diss


A memorial bearing over one million names of those killed during the First World War was on display at a museum last weekend.

The Poppy of Honour, an eight-foot-tall sculpture in the shape of a poppy, was on display at the Norfolk Tank Museum in Forncett St Peter as part of their Armourfest weekend.

Museum director Stephen Machaye said: “It’s was amazing to have the memorial for Armourfest as it is such a rare item recording the names all those from the UK who lost their lives in the First World War.”
