Ghostly reflections

You don’t really see them at first, when you walk into St Michaels Church in Princetown, then your eyes adjust.

You can just see the outline of two ghostly figures sitting in the pews of this church, with a poppy or a cross next to them. As you walk around the church they catch reflections of the stained glass windows.

The two ghostly figures represent millions of soldiers who died more than a century ago in the Great War, some of whom may have sat in these very pews.

The Great War saw hundreds of thousands of British and allied troops killed.

The two ghostly figures are made of clear Perspex and are part of the commemoration to mark 100 years since the end of the First World War.
