I came across an interesting memorial today while searching our database. It commemorates Lieutenant Hector Maclaine of the Royal Horse Artillery, who was killed in Afghanistan in 1880.
The inscription tells us that he was taken prisoner and later killed while trying to get water for the wounded after a battle. What makes it interesting is the form the memorial takes – a water fountain!
Another example of what certainly appears to be a rather whimsical selection of memorial type is emergency exit signs in a church … dedicated to RAF prisoners of war.
