          Major S., not trying to be a nit-picker and I'm not familiar with that statue but it would appear to me that it would be one dedicated to WW2 tankers. Notice the headsets and especially that they are wearing pixie suits.

            Canuckster, wel obswerved
            I noted the same thing.
            It appears the memorial depicts the five crewmen of the World War II Comet tank: commander, gunner, loader, hull machine gunner and driver.
            Having said that and if memory serves well, it is equally dedicated to men who served in WW1 as to WW2.
            That and the reason I did like the statue is why I included it
