Tom Wilson: He entered the army at the age of 12 and was, it seems, quite a brilliant cavalry commander, serving in Flanders, the French Revolutionary War and the campaigns against Napoleon.
Jolie statue, j'aime aussi l'horloge
Tom Wilson: Merci, Martine

His statue is nicely placed to make a really good composition with the building.
Tom Wilson: It is indeed.

A fine statue to mark his Lordship's stature in the town.
Tom Wilson: Although I imagine that, today, few residents have any idea of who he was smile
