Many thanks for posting this.

It is a truly remarkable piece.

Why couldn't the person invoved in this incredible memorial been asked to do the Piper at Longueval Somme ?

I have to confess I find it a monstrosity and obviously not to my taste.

Apologies for diverting from the subject.

Or why couldn't the Piper sculptor have be sent to Australia? (my apologies to the Aussies).

That is a splendid memorial to the Light Horse. Well done to all concerned.

It's a lovely statue and a smashing memorial, but it ain't Nice. That's in France, Mo, not Australia.

Very droll Steven,

thanks Mo.

I know quite a few friends who will go out of their way to see this monument - horsemen one and all. They will understand the spirit of the piece.

Lest we forget

Regards

Hello all.

What a terrific memorial. Let those who would design future memorials take note.

Keep the candle burning.
