Since I feel sometimes like I an a displaced anglophile, I immediately became interested in this monument and decided to investigate further. Being that my father fought in the Great War, I am always clamoring to learn more about the allied forces and their commanders. Thanks so much for your post. Here is what I found in Wikipedia. It is such an interesting and fascinating entry."General Henry Sinclair Horne, 1st Baron Horne GCB, KCMG (19 February 1861 – 14 August 1929) was a military officer in the British Army, most notable for his generalship during the Great War. He was the only British artillery officer to command an army in the war. Until recently Horne was the unknown General of the Great War and did not have a biographer. It was believed that he had not kept a diary and that his wife had destroyed all his letters after his death. The donation of his extensive papers, which include his diaries and letters, to the Imperial War Museum by the family has allowed his career to be re-evaluated."
I really like the look of this fountain. I hope you'll take another photo when the water is flowing...PLEASE. :)
Interesting.There is so much of history that just fades from memory. Glad to have this tributes as reminders.
A very interesting fountain - thanks for the post!
I like the texture and smallness of the installation.
It would be interesting to see it with the water flowing later.
I love these monuments that keep us aware of the local history
