This spectacular display of model soldiers in shrouds was lined up outside College Green, near Bristol Cathedral today and will be there for several days.
A Somerset artist, Rob Heard, modelled these soldiers individually meaning that each one is unique and then he hand wrapped them in silk shrouds. This took him two years to complete.
Just under 20,000 men were ticked from a list of soldier conscripts and volunteers who fell on the first day of the Battle of the Somme, World War 1.
It is mind blowing to think this number of men were slaughtered on the first day of the Somme. Many more would follow.
We must never forget the great sacrifice that was made then and in all the wars since, so that you and I could have our freedom.
A very humbling thought.
