    That is a very dynamic piece of art. It captures the movement superbly.

    The gates of hell were opened and we accepted the invitation to enter" 26/880 Lance Sgt, Edward Dyke. 26th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers , ( 3rd Tyneside Irish )

    1st July 1916

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    It really is a Great War memorial Dave, very impressive and fitting for the bravery of those blokes.

    Paul, that is a massive memorial, I had no idea it was as large as that. Incredible. That particular battle deserves an impressive memorial befitting the significance of the German defeat and it certainly has that in this amazing sculpture.
