All over again

By Tivoli

Winners and those other people

“The Battle of Hastings” did not take place at Hastings, but at Battle.
“Warrior Square” in St Leonards displays this statue of Queen Victoria, not a warrior.
I was told that during the War (1939-45) the statue was shot with a bullet to the knee.
None of this has anything to do with the Battle of Wounded Knee, though the injury is plainly visible.

Also in Hastings is a loggia called “Bottle Alley”. The enclosed side is decorated with panels of coloured broken glass bottles set into concrete and the open side has some very imaginatively painted columns. Normally I would regard broken glass set into cement as passive/aggressive, but in this instance I see it as artistic and decorative

Hut-hut-hut-hut-hut is another matter altogether.
