It is my intention to have three statues in the Borough of Halton :- Runcorn & Widnes.
The three statues are not about just the individual, they each represent a group of people.
TODGER JONES V.C. D.C.M. represents everyone who has served our country, irrespective of what they have or are doing, and where they come from. Only to be forgotten after discharge right up to the present day.
THOMAS MOTTERSHEAD V.C. D.C.M. will represent everyone who has and are willing to serve our country irrespective where they come from and what they have done or doing.
THOMAS WILKINSON V.C. will represent all those who have knowingly gone into action or entering a situation that will or could cost them their life, whilst serving our Country, irrespective of where they come from.
You will notice none of them represent those that have paid the ultimate price, we have the two Cenotaph’s and the many War Memorials for that.
AS IT SAY’S ON CENOTAPH’S AND EVERY WAR MEMORIAL :-
LEST WE FORGET.
HOW DARE WE FORGET?
