A donation to the memorial statue has been made in honour of this soldier by Perry Noble:
"Rarely is the phrase that we stand on the shoulders of giants more apt than when recognising the bravery and sacrifice made by so many young men in the Great War.
The challenges that we encounter in our modern high speed and connected world are truly puny in comparison. Their endurance illuminates us all even now and whilst we are immeasurably grateful to them it will never be enough."
