    There already is (or was) a monument to Price near the bridge. I visited there a few years ago. However, it was near a run-down housing estate and didn't look in the best condition. Maybe they decided to replace it?

    Not sure I'm a big fan of the new monument - looks a bit too "artsy" for me. I'm also not sure focusing so much attention on one man who just by chance happened to be the last British Empire soldier to be killed in WWI is such a good idea. Better to remember all the dead. Still, it makes a good, sentimental story for the news channels I suppose.
