100 silk banners unveiled to honour forces personnel

More than 100 silk banners in all the colours of the rainbow will be unveiled to the public in the grounds of Mount Edgcumbe Country Park, Cornwall, today. The banners have been created by women from forces families and community groups in Saltash, Torpoint and Plymouth.

They mark the launch of a week-long art installation celebrating the region's maritime heritage and the vital support role played by the families of service personnel deployed abroad.
