[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″ animation=”none” column_padding=”padding-4-percent” column_padding_position=”bottom” background_color_opacity=”1″][vc_column_text]Twelve months to the day since conception and after many hours of careful planning, 19240 Shrouds of The Somme was officially launched in a ceremony at Exeter Guildhall in April 2015.

Attended by over ninety people including the Lord Mayor of Exeter and Chairman of The Exeter Foundation, Mr Tony Rowe OBE, the night was a huge success.

Steve Knightley and Rob Heard hosted the ceremony with Steve performing moving tracks from his recent album – Centenary which features poetry, songs and original music.

An unveiling by The Rifles later in the evening of a selection of Shrouds brought a reverent silence to the room and a lone trumpeter performing the Last Post while accompanied by Steve Knightley brought the evening to a successful conclusion.
