We remember

Released: 06.11.14

The University of St Mark & St John plans to pay its own unique Remembrance Day tribute to 1,100 former students who fought in the First World War.

At a ceremony on November 11, students from the University’s touring theatre company Actor’s Wheel are set to read out letters sent home from the front line as part of a nationwide day of centenary First World War remembrance.

As a special tribute, staff and students will also “plant” a recycled poppy for each of the 1,100 St Marks and St Johns alumni who fought in the First World War.

The ceremony is due to commence at 10.45am.
