It's a sculpture of Captain J. Walker R.N. He was the leader of a flotilla of escort ships, corvettes, sloops, frigates and destroyers operating out of Liverpool in the Western Approaches during Wolrd War II. His escort group was very successful in overcoming the U-boat menace in the and protecting Atlantic convoys.

He's a hero of mine partly because my father served on frigates and corvettes during the war.

Very nice shot, by the way, Ian.
Best wishes,

Andrew

Nicely done. The statue almost looks alive from this angle.
