Preston Railway Free Buffet for Soldiers and Sailors
Preston Railway Free Buffet for Soldiers and Sailors
During World War I, as soldiers and sailors passed through the railway station in Preston, they were greeted by a team of women, volunteering their time to provide the servicemen with hot drinks. Here willow sculptures pay tribute to those women and the military men.
Seen at RHS Tatton Park flower show 2017.
