This statue can be found in Seaham, County Durham and was created by local artist Ray Lonsdale and is intended to represent Post Traumatic Stress Disorder which many of the returning soldiers endured during World War I. The statue, called Tommy, is depicted with his head bowed and his rifle in hand
as he reflects on the horror of World War I during the first minute after peace was declared in 1918.
It was installed in May 2014 and intended for 3 months but it has remained in place as it now depicts itself as a monument to the town. It can be found on the seafront near the Terrace Green centotaph.
