Duke of York Column

Duke of York Column
The Mall, SW1
Charing Cross

Designed and built by Benjamin Wyatt in 1834, the Duke of York's column rivals nearby Nelson's Column (Trafalgar Square). It is said that the column was paid for by a voluntary donation of one day's pay from every man in the British Army, but, given the meagre pay in most armies, one must wonder just how voluntary the contribution actually was.
