WW1 Tommy Installation At Swan Meadow – Vandalised
Remembrance honours those who serve to defend our democratic freedoms and way of life. We unite across faiths, cultures and backgrounds to remember the sacrifice of the Armed Forces community from Britain and the Commonwealth.
This year, the Ivers Parish Council was once again proud to mark Remembrance Sunday honouring the service, sacrifice, friendship and collaboration of the men and women of Britain, the Commonwealth and Allied nations who fought together in 1944.
We are beyond sad however to report that the Tommy installation at Swan Meadow in Iver (part of the WW1 commemoration) was targeted by vandals over the weekend who removed the surrounding poppy display and attempted to destroy the silent silhouette soldier figure itself. We have now removed the Tommy and the Grounds team are working to repair the senseless and disrespectful damage caused.
Lest We Forget
