SETA Stockport Apprentices built a Battle of the Somme Tank model
During 2014-16 SETA Apprentices and Staff have designed and fabricated a 1:3 scaled model of a 1916 Mark1 Tank. The tank is to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Battle of the Somme and we have worked with the Friends of Stockport Cemeteries to create this fantastic memorial.
The Tank will be used by the Friends of Stockport Cemeteries during their Remembrance Weekend starting on Saturday 12th November 2016 through to the Remembrance Memorial Ceremony on Sunday, 13th November 2016 after which it will take its final resting place with Reddish Army Cadets.
The presentation will take place at SETA at 11.30 am on Friday, 28th October 2016 when the Lord Mayor of Stockport will be handing over the tank to Friends of Stockport Cemeteries. Other special guests will be representatives from the Army Cadets and The Royal British Legion.
