K.O.Y.L.I Memorial Unveiled

K.O.Y.L.I Memorial Unveiled

War Memorial Unveiled August 1st

On Wednesday 1st August 2018, we unveiled our memorial for the K.O.Y.L.I regiment in Elmfield Park in Doncaster. This project first started around 2 and a half years ago.  It has been a very thorough process working with the regiment very closely, making changes and tweaks down to the finest details making sure we could make it as authentic and accurate as possible.

For us as a family business it has been an honour and a pleasure to work with this regiment whose values are very much based around family. The whole journey has been very humbling and emotional and none more so than the unveiling day, with it being Yorkshire Day, Minden Day and the 50th anniversary of the regiments end it really was a moving experience.

Over 400 people attended on August 1st, including Mayors from Doncaster and the surrounding areas, with BBC and ITV both in attendance for coverage on tv.  Seeing so many people was a real credit to the hard work the K.O.Y.L.I committee had put in, in order for this day to happen. It was also brilliant to meet all of the veterans and their families and to hear their thoughts on the statue.  All of the feedback we received was positive which was so overwhelming and made all the hardwork worth while.
