The book launch of Mark Christmas’s book of poetry was held at the NMA on the 6th of November. Amongst the people to who attended was Yorkie Malone, one of the original “Abandoned Soldiers” from the BBC documentary, The Battle Of Trafalgar.
Yorkie has since urged the 600+ members of the face book group to email the National Memorial Arboretum asking them to make sure that TAS will have a permanent home there.
Covering the story was a news crew from Central television and a Photographer from the Express & Star. Mark also had an interview with BBC Radio Stoke’s Breakfast show that morning.
The project would like to thank the Staff at the NMA for all their support, the poetry readers, Alison Jones for singing in the Millennium Chapel & Colin from West Yorkshire. We would also like to thank everybody who made the effort to come and make the day a success.
