[EDIT You are more than welcome to make merciless fun of my reverting to how I may have sopoken as a 4 year old… "General Wolfe Statue Returnded After 60 Years" Duh, grin]

I was just surprised to hear on the CBC news that a small bronze statue of General Wolfe stolen from the Canadian Archives building 60 years ago was returned with a note from someone whose conscience had been bothering him for a long time and wanted to make amends.

Better late than never. Bravo to whoever it was who wanted to make things right.

That's great it was returned. I won't make fun of your spelling Tim. Glass house and all that……

Thanks,

Probably scale creep – all the new 250mm figures are closer to 270 and he just could not get anything compatible.

I like that the Archives isn't even sure it's missing…
