100th Anniversary Remembrance Memorial for Devon and Cornwall Police
3D Carved and Polished Poppy Head
The Poppy head was carved by hand out of a single slab on rich red granite and finished off with a deep black granite center. The Poppy head was then polished to a highly glossed finish to ensure the colour would stay strong and not fade.
The Pillar supporting the poppy head is solid black granite with the Devon and Cornwall crest reveres blasted into the Granite. This technique allows for a long last gloss black finish without the maintenance of paint. Providing a long lasting and hard wearing finish.
The Poppy Memorial is the celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Great War. Commissioned by the Chief Constable of Devon and Cornwall to remember the 16.5 million military and civilian souls.
The memorial includes the names of the 34 known Police Officers from Devon and Cornwall who display extraordinary courage and bravery, giving the ultimate sacrifice. Further remembered are the 17 officers who have died in conflicts since 1939.
