The Prince of Siam’s dog trough

14 Jul 09 | Re: Little-known monument

In Cambridge, on Mitchum’s Corner, just outside Lloyd’s TSB, is a stone trough bearing the following inscription:

In memory of Tony a dog who gave him friendship and happiness during his Cambridge years this trough is erected by His Royal Highness Prince Chula of Siam

A lot of people going in and out of the bank don’t notice it, even if they have dogs. It took me a while.

If you want to know more about Prince Chula, I suppose Wikipedia is as good a start as any.
