General Wolfe statue General Wolfe statue

Statue: General Wolfe statue

Erection date: 5/6/1930


{On the pock-marked back of the plinth:}
This monument, the gift of the Canadian people was unveiled on the Fifth of June 1930 by Le Marquis de Montcalm.

{On the front of the plinth there is a carved wreath with, at the centre:}
James Wolfe 1727 - 1759 victor of Quebec
{and underneath:}

Site: General Wolfe statue (1 memorial)

SE10, Greenwich Park

A news report of the unveiling makes it clear that the event was used, not only to express the friendship between Canada and Britain, but also between both of those countries and France.

The pockmarks on the plinth are surely WW2 damage, either caused by bombs, or a plane strafing the ground aiming at anti-aircraft batteries set up in the park.
