"I think it’s a lovely idea to personalise objects that might otherwise seem inanimate, fixed. Because this is a wonderful poem, I hope it will give a sense of intimacy and personality to the experience. I look forward to hearing it at Paddington.”
The War Memorial at Paddington Station –also known as The Unknown Soldier - was made by Charles Sergeant Jagger to remember the fallen.
