Presentation of the Unknown Warrior Window

Today I visited Astor College of the Arts to attend the presentation of a stained glass window commemorating the Unknown Warrior and all those who have fallen in the service of their country.

The Dover War Memorial Project organised the creation of this lasting memorial, and got local schoolchildren to produce the design for the stained-glass window. The objective was to teach our children about the sacrifices that were made and to give them ownership of their own history.

The stained-glass window toured the country and has been housed at many sites including Westminster Abbey and today was presented, on permanent loan, to Astor College of the Arts where it will be housed and where thousands of young people will be invited to visit. It was a very moving ceremony and shows the dedication of all those who give their time to work on the Dover War Memorial project.
