First World War Centenary
2018 was the 100th anniversary of the Armistice at the end of the First World War.
Havering Council supported a campaign called “There But Not There” that saw large six foot high silhouettes of a British soldier from the First World War placed at locations across the UK to remind people of the enormous sacrifice made by servicemen and women in that conflict.
The "Tommy" silhouettes were placed at a number of locations in the borough until the end of 2018
A plaque was placed alongside the silhouette explaining the campaign. "Tommy" was also used to highlight our Remembrance Sunday services, parades and a beacon lighting event on 11 November 2018.
