Oswestry, United Kingdom, June 14, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- North Shropshire College (NSC) Art Lecturer, Kate Smallwood, recently met with Andrew Tullo from Cambrian Heritage Railways (CHR) to discuss how the 53 ceramic poppies, which were made by NSC Art students in remembrance of each soldier from the historic Cambrian Railway Company who died during the First World War, will be further involved in CHR’s next commemorative event.
Over the course of this year, CHR will be honouring the men on the 100th anniversary of each death with a candle placed in the First World War exhibition at the CHR museum in Oswestry. With each candle, one of the ceramic poppies will be added to the exhibition, so that over the year the number of poppies displayed will grow until there are 53.
Kate Smallwood commented on the collaboration with Cambrian Heritage Railways saying, "I was really pleased when Andrew contacted me to further involve the poppies within their commemorative events. The students made the poppies to represent each soldier from the Cambrian Railways who fought and died in the First World War, so it seems perfect that they can be used again to honour those men in the commemorations being held by the Cambrian Railways."
Kate added, "The next ceremony will be in August of this year when Cambrian man J.E. Humphries will be honoured. NSC is honoured to be part of this commemoration event headed by Cambrian Heritage Railways."
