The Mail had a photo today of the new planned memorial for all Service personnel killed since 1945. Whilst the idea of a memorial is a fantastic one, does anyone else think these figures are bl00dy awful. This thing has figures of soldiers carrying a colleague on a stretcher... surrounded by wailing women and children. It also has a soldier clawing at a door (to Elysium?) Give me strength. And why do they have no tops on? The best British memorials are understated, timeless pieces. Think of the Cenotaph, the poppy, or the simple headstone and sword mounted on the cross at CWG cemetaries. Figures, when they are shown, are noble, understated, and solemn- think of the Guards memorial on Horseguards or the Royal Marines memorial at Spean Bridge. This lot look like a boy band The rest of the memorial seems great, but these figures seem totally out of place.What does everyone else think?
