Unknown Tommy Statue

Unknown Tommy Statue at St Mary's 

The Unknown Tommy Statue has been installed at Barby War Memorial. 


The Parish Council purchased two of these statues, one for Barby and one for Onley from the Royal British Legion.
They are designed, made and shipped by the RBLI social enterprise and each purchase directly provides employment for veterans as well as a lasting reminder of our nation's fallen soldiers and those who continue to serve.
