Thanks, Nigel! Quite a lovely looking memorial, pity the end of his Mauser seems to be broken.

Gents,

You're welcome. It was a very good memorial. Ironically, it includes the phrase 'Dulce est pro patria mori' which I have always considered as a very British sentiment ('Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori' being Wilfred Owen's quote from Horace).
