Twenty statues are on display in Trafalgar Square. The sculptures are of injured servicemen, and are a tribute to their determination to rebuild their lives after they were injured. It's ahead of National Heroes Day, which is this Sunday, and has been organised by Help For Heroes.
The statues were in place from 8am today and will be there until 3pm. From there they will be moved to places of significance around the servicemen's home towns. Rory Mackenzie, Simon Brown and Colin Luther-Davis are the three London based soldiers who have been honoured.
Sculptor Stuart Murdoch has created a battalion of 20 statues of veterans, capturing the determination of each individual to rebuild their lives after injury. The veterans themselves were there to see their sculptures unveiled.
