Erected in 1925 this nude statue of the 'Boy David' holding a sword is not immediately recognisable as a war memorial, however on closer inspection it can be seen that David is flanked by wreathed machine guns.
 
The inscription refers to the enormous slaughtering potential of the machine gun.
 
The following website gives a respectful description of the memorial and the troops involved.
