Statue of a soldier

By morpheus1955  
This is a part of a statue of a soldier outside the D-Day museum on Southsea sea front, that caught my attention. Who it is modeled on I have no idea, I am guessing it is a representation of the many soldiers who were involved in the D-Day landing, my father being one of them.

Thank you as always for all your C&C's very much appreciated

Thanks for taking the time to look

Excellent composition, going in just close enough while maintaining respect. And the green, vibrant background is rather moving as a contrast.

A rather aesthetically beautiful image, however on the other-side of the coin, extremely emotive.

Really well composed, Hugh. And clearly somewhere new for us to visit next time we head south.

A fine detailed shot Hugh.
My father was in the Merchant Navy during the war.
He was not at D-Day,but on the convoys to Murmansk and Archangel.

Thank you for this Hugh, my father was also involved in D-Day-- a reconnaissance flyer--- up early and flying in the fog--- They did a good thing that day-- at a terrible cost!

Reminds me of a soldier statue in Cartagena in Spain, looking just as sad and dejected. Nice detail on the statue here, Hugh.
