An intricate and beautiful Altar Frontal is on display inside the Cathedral for the full length of the 2014-2018 centenary period.
The art and craft of 138 men, severely injured by the horrors of warfare, forms the centrepiece of St Paul's Cathedral commemoration of the centenary of World War One.
The simple beauty of the altar frontal belies the tragic but often uplifting stories of the men who created it. This altar frontal was commissioned especially for the national service of Thanksgiving at the end of the War in July 1919, attended by King George V.
We have used the altar frontal to create some beautiful gifts in keeping with the original designs.
