Dickin Medal Memorial, Woodbank Memorial Park, Stockport

This chainsaw sculpted Memorial to recipients of the Dickin Medal (the animal equivalent of the Victoria Cross), is in Woodbank Memorial Park, Stockport. There is a horse at the top, a mule, a carrier pigeon, a cat, an Alsation, and a mongrel dog that found people trapped by the Blitz bombings - as well as a dove of peace, and an inscription - 'They died in war - they still serve in conflict'. The sculpture is over 16 feet tall.
