Sir John Moore monument CC97_01091

Sir John Moore Monument, St Pauls Cathedral, London. A view of the monument by John Bacon (1815) on the south wall of the South Transept to Sir John Moore. General Sir John Moore commanded British forces in Spain in 1808-09. On the advance of 200, 000 enemy troops, Moore drew the French northwards towards his embarkation point in Galicia. A rearguard action at the Battle of Corunna bought breathing space to embark the British forces, but resulted in Moores death in battle. This heroic death was celebrated in poetry by Charles Wolfe. Moore was also honoured by the French with a monument over his grave at La Coruna. Photographed by York and Son between 1870-1900
