Project News

Review of the year from Chairman, LMS-Patriot Project, David Bradshaw (with due acknowledgment to Chris Proudfoot of the 82045 Project)

Yesterday, I read Chris Proudfoot’s monthly update on the 82045 web page which was followed by his review of 2017.  This reminded me that I still hadn’t completed my end of 2017 review for the Patriot, so thank you Chris for this timely reminder.

Patriot boiler moves to West Shed as contract is signed

The LMS-Patriot Project is pleased to announce that Heritage Boiler Steam Services Ltd.  (HBSS) has been selected as the new boiler contractor to complete the boiler for 'The Unknown Warrior'.

Statement regarding the Royal British Legion and the LMS-Patriot Project

The following statement was read out at the LMS-Patriot Company AGM on 11th November

Our relationship with the Royal British Legion

In 2009, Richard Sant (Company Secretary) and Andrew Laws (Marketing and Publicity Director) had a meeting with the then Royal British Legion Director of Corporate Communications, Stuart Gendall.  He told them that the Legion could not support the Project financially, but endorsed our aims and said that we could use the Legion crest.

Raising the pressure!

You will all be aware we received a setback when LNWR Heritage decided to end all sub-contract work meaning they would not be completing the construction of the boiler for The Unknown Warrior. At present we are working hard to find a new supplier but cannot say exactly when this will be, but it is likely be known in the next couple of months, therefore we need to ensure we have the funds available when the construction restarts. For that reason, we are launching our Raising the Pressure! appeal for funds dedicated to the completion of the boiler.
