The University of St Mark & St John paid its own unique Remembrance Day tribute to 1,100 former students who fought in the First World War.
At an Armistice Day ceremony, students from the University’s touring theatre company The Actor’s Wheel read out letters sent home from the front line - in an original performance entitled “Picking Up The Fallen” - as part of a nationwide day of centenary First World War remembrance.
As a special tribute, staff, students and visitors “planted” a recycled poppy for each of the 1,100 St Mark's and St John's alumni who fought in the First World War.
