Kitchener Scholars Association are proud to support Letter to an Unknown Soldier

Summer 2014

LETTER TO AN UNKNOWN SOLDIER is a new kind of war memorial, made only of words and by thousands of people.

The memorial is being created by Neil Bartlett and Kate Pullinger, inspired by the statue on Platform One of Paddington Station, which features a statue of an ordinary soldier in battle dress, reading a letter.

Everyone is invited to stop, think, and write him a letter. What would you say to the soldier if you were writing to him now?

The website is open now to receive letters. From 28 June and up until 4 August, all letters received will be published online.

They will be featured alongside letters written by writers like Stephen Fry, Andrew Motion, Sheila Hancock and Malorie Blackman.

The entire collection will be archived online at The British Library and kept in perpetuity for generations to come.
