Tommy...

By 213hardy      
or officially Eleven "0" One.

First time i've actually got to Photograph this Iconic Sculpture, at Seaham, County Durham, have seen him in passing a number of times though.

Created in by Ray Lonsdale in 2014, he sit on Seaham seafront, almost guarding the war memorial.
The plaque on the back reads :

Now adrift in the wake of this glorious slaughter.. he'd seen many a soul cleansed in filthy water
seen godless men reach out for the bible, as lead tore the flesh from both friend and rival
soon home to the joy and celebration of kin, drunken slaps on the back at a favourite inn,
but heavy in his pocket lies a small piece of card .. and the note written on it will break a mothers heart.

Thanks for looking

I think this is the best picture of Tommy that I've seen, Denis, tactically avoiding the face being in shadow.
