This copper figure of a WWI infantryman carrying a rifle and a grenade appears to be advancing through No Man's land. It was sculpted by E.M. Viquesney and dedicated in 1926. The statue is re­moved from its granite base at the end of each October to be cleaned and repainted, and is returned to the site at the church at the end of the following May.
