A poem to commemorate the raising of the splendid statues in Battle Town.

The Warriors of 1066

Proud soldiers guarding the town of Battle.

One mounted on a sinewed charger, both with swords and carrying decorated shields.

Standing strongly on their prosthetic legs,

Reminding us of the challenges and perils of conflict.
