  • Gorgeous monument commemorating the sacrifice of animals, large and small, employed by British and Commonwealth forces during the Great War. The memorial is situated on a traffic island to the North-East of Hyde Park, not too far from Marble Arch and Speaker's Corner. Sadly ignored by the majority of people who walk past it, it is a stunning work of art that deserves to be appreciated by us all.
  • Nice memorial on the crosswalk to Hyde Park. Also a good pokeystop
