As a piece of art, the bronze statue is beautiful. As a part of history, it is much more important. On our way to Trafalgar Square, we passed this bronze equestrian statue of Field Marshal Douglas Haig (1861-1928). He was in charge of the British...More

IMHO General Haig was a butcher and not a hero, so it is upsetting to see this memorial in a prominent location in Whitehall. Of course he's on a horse looking noble. Oh, well, he is a historic figure.

In a beautiful area on the way to Trafalgar Square. It's a bronze statue commemorating one of the many World War 1 heroes. I believe this is right near the military headquarters.

Earl Haig Memorial is on the street. On the same street is located The Women of World War II so it is interesting to walk there.
