This statue is a tribute to Hugh Trenchard, a Marshal of the Royal Air Force who is considered the Father of the RAF. His contribution was fundamental in establishing the RAF as an independent arm of the British Armed Forces and for succeeding in preserving the RAF in it's initial years as it struggled for survival as a force in it's own right.

The statue shows Trenchard standing upright ad dignified in his uniform. Left foot forward and eyes staring intently perhaps across the River Thames, perhaps at the RAF Memorial.
Hugh Montague Trenchard was a British officer who was known to be the father of the Royal Air Force.
