    Me and the mrs went to Scarborough yesterday giving me the chance to see Ray Lonsdales sculpture "Freddie Gilroy"
    "The sculpture is based on a retired miner Ray became friends with who turned out to also be one of the first soldiers to relieve the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp at the end of World War II."

    Didn't have a mug for scale so used our lass
