Photos: More than therapy

28 March 2014


A detail from an altar frontal at St Paul's Cathedral, which was stitched by shell-shocked veterans of the First World War. It is now being restored by the cathedral broderers, and will be used at a special eucharist on 3 August. It will then form the focus of an area set aside for the next four years to commemorate the war. The frontal was made by 133 former soldiers, from hospitals throughout the country, under the auspices of the Royal School of Needlework. The cathedral is now trying to contact their descendants. www.stpauls.co.uk
