Steel Solitary Soldiers’ have been placed in Maldon and Burnham to mark the start of the District Council’s commemoration of 100 years since the end of the First World War.

The two steel soldiers and one steel sailor will stand for 100 days and depict a poignant image of the First World War.

Located in Promenade Park, Riverside Park and Hythe Quay, the soldiers are part of a range of tributes and events in the lead up to the 11th of November, named ‘Battles Over’.

The intentionally low key unveilings of the soldiers were undertaken by the Chairman of the Council, Cllr Henry Bass and assisted by his Vice Chairman Cllr Neil Pudney, in Burnham-on-Crouch and Cllr Bob Boyce and Cllr Andrew St Joseph..

The placement of these Soldiers is the start of commemoration events. More information will be available shortly on our dedicated webpage www.VisitMaldonDistrict.co.uk/BattlesOver and staff at our Tourist information Centre in Maldon and Burnham are co-ordinating a list of events taking place leading up to 11 November.
