The Honiton siblings who discovered the town’s missing Silent Soldier will be congratulated in person by councillors.
Jess and Jacob Curram are set to commended by town councillors and Paul Shaw, chairman of the Honiton branch of the Royal British Legion, in a presentation taking place ext Monday.
The duo, who both attend Honiton Community College, hit the headlines last month when they discovered Honiton’s missing Silent Soldier in a tunnel at Honiton Bottom Nature Reserve, off Battishorne Way.
The memento, which commemorates 100 years since the end of World War One, went missing at the start of August.
Presumed stolen, the incident caused uproar in Honiton’s community.
A £1,000 reward for its safe return failed to see it brought back to its station, by the town’s Aldi store, leaving many fearing it would not be seen again.
Both Jess and Jacob will attend next week’s town council meeting, on Monday (September 17), at The Beehive, where a presentation will be held for them.
The meeting begins at 7pm, with the presentation taking place at 6.45pm - check out the agenda here.
