THREE silhouetted soldiers to act as a reminder of sacrifices made during the First World War have been put in place across the borough.

A 'Tommy' silhouette can now be seen in Andover Garden of Remembrance, in Stockbridge by Old St Peter's Church and outside Romsey's former magistrates court.

The striking figures have been funded by Test Valley Borough Council as part of a nationwide campaign, There But Not There, to represent those who lost their lives in the conflict.

Leader of Test Valley Borough Council, Councillor Phil North, said: “We felt it was very important for these silhouettes to be situated in Test Valley as a reminder of just what sacrifices were made during World War One.

“Though no-one who made those sacrifices will ever be forgotten, it is fitting that we can honour them in this way.”

The statues will remain in place as the three Test Valley towns commemorate those who gave their lives in First World War in the lead up to Remembrance Day, and those who have since died while serving their country.

Culture and Heritage Champion, Councillor Dorothy Baverstock said: “These silhouettes will stand tall for all to see and make sure those who gave their lives are remembered in the most honourable and respectful way.”
