The life-sized bronze figure of the First World War soldier was commissioned by members of the Baronian family in memory of their son who was killed in battle. The family commissioned William Hamo Thorneycroft to carry out the work. The statue was originally situated in the garden of Brae Cottage until the family left the cottage in the early 1930s. The statue was then moved to a temporary site in a small garden at Booth Hall on the edge of Booth Park near Chelford Road.
