First World War Silent Soldier Tribute

To mark the centenary of the First World War, The Royal British Legion has invited the public to take part in a movement to say 'Thank You' to the First World War generation who served, sacrificed, rebuilt and changed the nation.

In support of this, eight near life-size Silent Soldier silhouettes are being unveiled at locations across the Fareham Borough, each with a significant connection to the First World War.

The silhouettes are a representation of 'Tommy' returning home silently at the end of the war. A new silhouette will be unveiled each week, and will remain until the end of next year.

Where are the Silent Soldiers?

We are asking members of the public to post their photos of the Silent Soldier silhouettes on our Facebook External Hyperlink and Twitter External Hyperlink page as and when they spot them around the Borough. 

Have Your Say 

We would like your help in choosing a location for the eighth soldier by taking part in an online Silent Soldier survey External Hyperlink. Here residents can vote between three different locations; Daedalus, Westbury Manor Museum or St Peter's Church, Titchfield.
