Notes on the Geography of The United Kingdom: London 3: Memorials: Photo 10
Close to Nelson's Column, this is a statue of General Henry Havelock, a hero of the Indian Mutiny. That title doesn't have the clout it once did, and in 2000 the mayor of London caused a mini-scandal by demanding the removal of the statue on the grounds that he didn't have a clue who Havelock was. A hundred and forty years earlier, the statue had been paid for by public subscription to honor a man who, dying in the besieged Lucknow residency, is supposed to have said at the end, "See how a Christian can die."
