Ocean’s WW1 Memorial has been unveiled to remember the fallen, injured and those who have served in the armed forces over the last 100 years.
WW1 Memorial Design Challenge
Following on from last summer’s schools challenge – to design a Memorial to commemorate the centenary of World War 1 – the memorial has now been unveiled at Ocean’s headquarters on 28th October 2014.
Scott Green (RAF and a former local school boy from Penrice Academy, St. Austell) had the honour of unveiling the memorial and also switching on the lights to illuminate Ocean’s Giant Poppy on the front of the building. The Giant Poppy was created to support the Royal British Legion’s (Cornwall Branch) annual poppy appeal.
Scott, who serves with the RAF police is one of the last members of the British Forces to leave Afghanistan as the British Troop withdrawal is almost complete.
The memorial, commissioned by the Ocean Group, was made by a number of Ocean apprentices and was the design of Camborne school girl Kimberley Gould.
Ocean’s Group Chief Executive David Renwick commented
“We are delighted that Scott has agreed to unveil the WWI memorial. We are both grateful to the men and women who fought for our freedoms one hundred years ago and in conflicts since then, including Afghanistan. Scott, on his three tours, has lost friends and comrades and it is fitting that an existing serving member of our forces honours us by carrying out the unveiling. Once the Remembrance ceremonies are over, the search will be on to find a permanent home for Cornwall’s stunning WWI memorial”.
Ocean’s Giant Poppy
Also created by Ocean’s apprentices was Ocean’s Giant Poppy. It proudly adorns Ocean’s Headquarters for a second year running and was ceremonially illuminated on the 28th October in support of the Poppy Appeal for the Royal British Legion (Cornwall branch), accompanied by a brass band and poetry reading.
