About the memorial:
Memorial to Admiral Sir Edward Codrington, G.C.B. Admiral Codrington fought in a number of engagements in the wars against France between 1792 and 1815, most notably the Glorious First of June in 1794, which both sides claimed to have won. But there was no doubt of his overwhelming victory over the Turkish/Egyptian fleet at Navarino Bay in 1827, which was a decisive moment in the Greek War of Independence. He remains a hero in Greece, where many roads are named after him. In a way this is not a proper war memorial, as he died in his bed at a good age, but it merits inclusion for the significance of his record.
