Historical information
Photos taken in London of a statue of a war hero commemorated for his work in Bomber Command in World War 2. Possibly taken by a Legatee while on a trip to London. It's likely that some Legatees had served in Bomber Command. There is a wreath and some flowers at the base of the statue so there might have been a service there.

Significance
A record that photos of significant statues and places in London were given to Legacy for the information of other Legatees.
