This stele is decorated with a big bronze
medallion on which you can see the face of the British general Sir Ronald
Charles. It was inaugurated in 1960 by a former mayor named André Bonnaire. This
work pays tribute to the man who liberated Landrecies on
November 4th 1918. Sir Charles was in command of
the 25th British division, which had to suffer
heavy casualties in order to seize the town.
