Controversial ‘Abandoned Soldier’ sculpture is installed at the NMA, just in time for book/campaign launch

After weeks of uncertainty, the ‘Abandoned Soldier’ statue has been safely transported to its temporary home at Staffordshire’s National Memorial Arboretum (NMA).  Those who moved  it  are members of 55 Off Platform Repair Company, part of 104 Force  Support Battalion REME based in Tidworth.  They managed the transportation of the 15-foot tall sculpture from London to the NMA at Alrewas, Staffs., where it will be on display during the launch of the poetry book of the same name on November 6th.

The media has also started to take an interest with local news and radio running stories. We hope this will start to give  the project the coverage it needs , people become aware and opinions are voiced.

The facebook group is continuing to grow and has now gained support from over 600 people.

 The Project would like to thank everybody for their help in getting TAS to the NMA

I was commissioned by the BBC for a documentary to highlight the problems faced by many of our service men and women who once they leave the forces often find themselves abandoned by the country they served.
