Saw Tommy after completing a lovely walk along the beach. He is surrounded by poppy wreaths and single poppies so fitting. He is never lonely so many visitors.

The people of Seaham crowdfunded this great piece of art and you can it's absolutely fantastic. Probably the most photoed thing in all of Seaham it regularly attracts crowds. Worth a visit to see this great piece of work in the flesh.

Tommy is seated on a box near the sea and appears to be contemplating the futility of War. Powerful and thought provoking.
