A REMARKABLE woollen tribute to the Armed Forces is on display at Warrington Salvation Army.

To mark 100 years since the Armistice, volunteers from the Academy Street base have knitted 3,600 poppies as well as wreaths and remarkably a host of tiny soldiers, sailors, airmen, nurses and land girls.

Some of the small knitted displays currently on show

The highly unusual tribute, which took 14 knitters several weeks to complete, is on display at the church all week; along with six lifesize silhouettes of soldiers from the There But Not There national Remembrance art installation.

The knitted tribute will form a striking backdrop to Warrington Salvation Army’s special service of Remembrance at 5pm on Sunday which will feature the Cheshire Band of buglers and a choir of Salvation Army Songsters.
