93 silhouettes have been placed in both landmark locations to depict the shadows of soldiers left absent in the wake of the war. The installations will be in place until Armistice Day for member of the public to visit.

 

Lord Henry Arundel commented: “I’m delighted by the installation of 93 silhouettes at Arundel. The ‘There But Not There’ campaign is a truly outstanding national venture, not only remembering the sacrifices of those who lived through war 100 years ago, but also channelling that into real help for veterans and others living today. Like so many other towns around the country, Arundel suffered greatly with the loss of its 93 fallen, and the Cathedral and St Nicholas Church are the perfect places for us to remember them.”

“The Arundel Town Council recognises the significant loss of service personnel in our small town. We wanted to ensure that the 100 year commemoration of WW1 is highlighted in a powerful and informative manner. The ‘There but not there’ campaign delivers a stunning and poignant tribute to those who never returned to their loved ones here. The educational part of the campaign is essential, so that future generations do not forget the great sacrifice they made for this country and what an effect it had on villages. 93 silhouettes in a single place of worship is a haunting reminder of those lives that were so precious to our community.  Each one has a unique story to tell."  Councillor Lucy Ashworth, Mayor of Arundel
