Haig's Statue

This statue of Field marshal Sir Douglas Haig was recently moved to within the walls of Edinburgh Castle.  Like the man himself (he lead British troops into British Expeditionary Force from 1915 to the end of WWI and was commander during some of the bloodiest battles of WW), the relocation of the statue was controversial as some people thought it should remain outside the castle.  It was thought to be an obstacle and safety hazard for people attending the Edinburgh military tattoo so inside the castle walls it was moved in 2011.
