The Obelisk or McGrigor Monument in Aberdeen's Duthie Park on a sunny February morning.
This monument of pink polished granite, built in 1860, by architect Alexander Ellis and artist James Giles, is a well-known landmark in Aberdeen.
It commemorates Sir James McGrigor, who was Director General of the Army Medical Department for 36 years in the late 18th/early19th century and served under Wellington during the Peninsular Wars.
Women were integral part even in World War!!
The Monument to the Women of World War II is a British national war memorial situated in London. The absolute urgency of mobilizing the entire population made the expansion of the role of women inevitable, although the particular roles varied from country to country. Millions of women of various ages died as a result of the war. The monument signifies uniform of women hanging them to go about their daily routine.
1752 Marylanders died during fighting in the First World War. If you go to the War Memorial (currently maintained by @baltimoredgs) across the street from @baltcityhall, you can see their names etched into the wall of the second floor of the building. The names are grouped by county, service, and listed by rank.
If you look closely, you'll notice that some Marylanders died fighting in the Allied militaries. One example was John P. Poe Jr. A distant cousin of Edgar Allan Poe, Johnny Poe joined the British military seeking adventure. He died on the opening day of the Battle of Loos fighting with the Black Watch, a Scottish Royal Regiment.
Tommy is a statue of a Great War soldier by artist Ray Lonsdale, displayed close to Seaham war memorial, on Terrace Green by the seafront in Seaham, County Durham, in North East England.
The corten steel statue weighs 1.2 tonnes (1.2 long tons; 1.3 short tons) and is 9 feet 5 inches (2.87 m) tall, with a rusty red patina. It depicts a First World War soldier, wearing boots, puttees, greatcoat and tin hat, sitting on an ammunition box, with downcast eyes, holding the barrel of his grounded rifle in his right hand. It is officially named 1101 (or Eleven-O-One), referring to the first minute of peace as the armistice came into force at 11am on 11 November 1918, but is more popularly known as Tommy, referring to the archetype private soldier Tommy Atkins.
It was displayed temporarily in Seaham from May 2014, but became a permanent fixture after a committee of local residents raised £102,000 needed to buy it. The price was handed over on 4 August 2014, the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War. The statue was relocated onto a paved platform in 2015, under which was buried a time capsule containing donated items, including a letter from Ray Lonsdale, a T-shirt, children's artworks, war remembrances, and a Victory Medal. #raylonsdalesculpture
The Third Battle of Panipat took place on 14 January 1761, at Panipat, about 60 miles (95.5 km) north of Delhi. The battle pitted the French-supplied artillery and cavalry of the Marathas under the command of Sadashiv Rao Bhau against the heavy cavalry and mounted Artillery (zamburak and jizail) of the Afghans led by Ahmad Shah Abdali, an ethnic Pashtun. The battle is considered one of the largest battles fought in the 18th century and the bloodiest day-one of the war with close to 30,000 fatalities.
The specific site of the battle itself is disputed by historians but most consider it to have occurred somewhere near modern day Kala Amb and Sanauli Road. The battle lasted for several days and involved over 125,000 men. Protracted skirmishes occurred, with losses and gains on both sides. The forces led by Ahmad Shah Abdali came out victorious after destroying several Maratha flanks. The extent of the losses on both sides is heavily disputed by historians, but it is believed that between 60,000-70,000 were killed in fighting, while numbers of the injured and prisoners taken vary considerably. The result of the battle was the halting of the Maratha advances in the North.
There is an obelisk commemorating the third battle. During the British regime, this obelisk was erected by the then Surveyor General of Archaeology in India. It marks the site of the Third Battle of Panipat. Here, Sadashiva Rao Bhau, who commanded the Maratha resistance during the battle, is believed to have laid down his life while fighting. According to the local traditions a black mango (kala amb) tree stood at this spot and it was under this tree that Bhau fought his last action. The old tree died and a new mango tree has been planted in its place near the Obelisk. A brick pillar with an iron rod at the top and an iron fence surrounding the whole area marks the site.
The memorial sits in a large cleared section of the park, facing the harbor. It is clearly visible from all sides of the park itself. The large half-sphere memorial was inaugurated on 13 August 1992 in honor of American forces stationed at New Caledonia during the Pacific War (Pacific Theatre of WWII). It is in the form of a globe and is surrounded by panels around its northern arc which are painted in vibrant red, white, and blue, giving the appearance of an American flag. A bronze plaque sits at the southern base of the structure and features the insignia of US military branches as well as embossed text in French and English. The memorial is surrounded by a low rope chain fence and is accessible by a small staircase which leads up to it. Two flag poles sit on each side of the memorial at its south end.
