On the way to St Paul's Cathedral, Mr Monkey found this sculpture. It's by John W. Mills, is called Blitz, and it commemerates the firemen and firewomen who died in the line of duty during the Second World War. It used to be shorter, and somewhere else, but someone moved it and put it on a plinth.
You can read about the memorial at the Vilas Fineart website.
