“Shrouds of the Somme is a particularly evocative part of this year’s commemorations marking the centenary of the end of the First World War. Giving visual scale to the numbers of lives lost will help us to appreciate the sacrifice made by so very many brave servicemen and women. The Shrouds are a hugely powerful symbol of those who so selflessly gave their today for our tomorrow.”
