About the memorial: A modern welded sculpture of Private Harvey composed of everyday metal objects, workshop tools and pieces of small machines set on a concrete plinth into which two footprints have been cast, representing the man stepping forward to do his duty. On the front face of the wooden surround of the plinth is a plaque detailing the act for which he was awarded the Victoria Cross. Sandbags are lined up along the sides of the plinth. The statue was commissioned to mark both the centenary of the award of the medal on 25th October 1918, and the centenary of the Armistice weeks later, and is set in the centre of the Remembrance Meadow. Pte. Harvey survived the war, and enlisted in the Royal Engineers in WW2 - and was killed in action on 16th February 1942 at Haifa, Palestine.
