The area
Address
Neighborhood: Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.

Another one of three statues in Whitehall Gardens. In this case, a Victorian Era General who had a distinguished Military career. Later he became an administrator in India where he also served with distinction.

Near the end of his career, he received special thanks from both houses of Parliament. He was given the title of Baronet, along with an annuity of £1000 per year.

This statue stands in tribute to James Outram, 1st Baronet, a British soldier known for his services to the British Empire, especially in the Indian Sub-continent. His command of the defence of Hyderabad against 8000 Baluchis, earning him honorific the "Bayard of India. Perhaps his most famous commands was during the Indian Rebellion of 1857-58, when he relieved the siege of Lucknow and ending the rebellion.

The statue depicts Outran in military uniform wearing the Star of India. He stands in portrait pose just in front of a captured cannon. In his left hand he holds what appears to be a scroll, ,lifted up to his chest. In his right hand, he holds a sabre, his hand on the hilt with the point of the sword resting on the ground. The statue stands atop a plinth and around the plinth are representations of sword and rounds shields.

A worthy tribute to a hero of the British Empire.

The statues of Trafalgar square. Many are of older war heroes. This one stands out as it has a large area around it.

Yet another monument to a General of the Victorian era, best known for his role in ending the Indian Mutiny which began in 1857. This is a fine bronze statue on a plain stone plinth, the only inscription being his surname. It’s located in the lovely Whitehall Gardens alongside the Victoria Embankment.

The Statue of General Sir James Outram is one of four statues in the beautiful and peaceful setting of Whitehall Palace Gardens.

Lots of people use the grass area for relaxing and having picnics with their families etc.

The base of the statue is plain and has a one word inscription.

Before seeing this status in Whitehall Gardens I have never heard of General Sir James Outram. He was a hero of the Indian Mutiny during which he relived the siege of Lucknow. Sir James was buried in Westminster Abbey with the epitaph “The Bayard of India” that means a knight without fear and beyond reproach.

Around the pedestal are trophies of arms at each corner representing the Indian Campaigns where he saw action
