Three life-size transparent ghosts of first world war soldiers have been unveiled at St Pancras, as part of the national There But Not There campaign. The ghostly figures of the tommies are there to mark the end of World War 1, which marks its centenary this year.
Designed by Martin Barraud and on display at the station until November 2018, the six foot high silhouettes will serve as a reminder of the fundamental role British railways played to the First World War effort, including the transportation of troops, aircrafts, munitions, and supplies.
They also commemorate the integral role women played in the conflict, employed by the rail industry in positions previously occupied by men.
The station is also planning for its first permanent war memorial to those who lost their lives in both world wars to be unveiled in November.
