The is an amazing piece of art by sculptor Ray Lonsdale entitled 'Tonny eleven o one' which is the exact time the armistice was signed to end world war 1 on July 1st 1916. It is so detailed and perfect you can't imagine how long he took to make it. There are always people around it taking picture and touching it. Tommy is looking towards the cenotaph with a battle weary face. Beautiful and makes you think what other people have sacrificed so me and you can have free speech and democracy.

Been to a lot of places but this figure has a different feeling to anywhere else..if you are lucky enough to be there when it is quiet you can not help feeling for all the people that gave their lives for in the wars. One of the best time to visit is just before dawn . Seeing the sun rise behind Tommy is beautiful and sad at the same time. As it makes him seem lonely and all by himself as if he was on the battlefield.

Both my Great Grandfathers fought in WW1. This emotional piece of art, underlines how 'PTSD' haunted both and their families. My Grandfather was maimed and left for dead by his 'father', who suffered from 'PTSD'.

A fantastic sculpture to commemorate the end of WWI, it's a tribute to the people of Seaham to who came together to raise the money to purchase it.
