As someone who has quite an interest in the 80th Foot/South Staffords (and thus Kirbekan) it is great to see this. I have considered popping up to Liverpool so will try and find Earle's statue when I do.

Thanks for posting!

I waited and waited for a breeze to catch the flag so I could get that last picture.
