Tidworth stolen war statue decision 'due next month'
Plans to replace a war statue stolen from the grounds of the Royal British Legion in Tidworth, Wiltshire, are to be discussed at a meeting next month.
The bronze 4ft high (1.2m) cast of a World War One soldier was stolen in October.
The Legion said it had lost all hope of getting the original statue back.
It said it was likely to cost more than the £10,000 it received in insurance to pay for a replacement and increased security.
The Legion is due to discuss proposals for the new monument, such as whether to cast it in bronze or something cheaper, at a committee meeting on 16 January.
A stone bowl of poppies temporarily replaced the statue at a Remembrance Parade and service held in November.
