Pete,

That could certainly be the case.

Very few of these statues seem to have survived so I don't know if they were not popular or whether they were re-used in later conflicts or some other reason?

Thanks, Mike.

Oosthuizen reuses the information from the National Army Museum which I believe to be the source of this error.
