Mr Monkey ran out of greenery and arrived at the Mall, which is part of the park even though it's a road. He paused to admire the column commerating Prince Frederick, Duke of York and Albany, which cost every soldier in the British Army in 1827 a day's pay. The Duke is famous for being the Duke of York of the nursery rhyme, and less famous for reorganising the army in the 1790s and founding Sandhurst. Then Mr Monkey turned to look at W.R. Colton's memorial to members of the Royal Artillery killed in the Boer War, erected in 1910.
