A photo from this morning of the Coventry Boy statue in Priory Street There is an inscription : This boy has no name but represents all boys of all time who are proud to belong here reaching out as always rough spun to close weave for family and city.

If its made of bronze, it won't be there much longer! Nuneaton had their famous Boer soldier statue stolen as it was bronze.

I love this statue. I'm proud that he represents me, my dad, my brothers, my uncles and my pals as we were. As long as he's there, we'll be there. For me that's the Coventry Evening Telegraph he's holding aloft, just as I did when I delivered them along the Bell Green Road and flogged the odd one outside the Morris gates.

Same here walrus. Nice comment Thumbs up I'm at least 6th generation Coventrian and always feel a little proud when I see an E-type or anything labelled Cov.
