Town shows its gratitude to two youngsters who found the missing Silent Soldier

Jess and Jacob Curram were presented with a framed certificate each on Monday evening’s meeting of Honiton Town Council, and given a round of applause from members.

The youngsters stole the headlines last month after finding Honiton’s missing Silent Soldier, which was presumed stolen, at Honiton Bottom Nature Reserve.

The were presented with certificates of community gratitude by mayor Councillor Henry Brown and Paul Shaw, chairman of the Royal British Legion.

Cllr Brown said: “Jess and Jacob were fantastic in coming forward when finding the Silent Soldier. It would be great if we could all show our appreciation to them.”

Cllr Caroline Kolek also suggested Cllr Brown write to the youngsters’ headteacher at their school.
