Frustration reigns on the trail of Paul Dardé

Today I had an appointment to keep in our nearby town of Clermont l'Hérault. This gave me the perfect opportunity to visit the town war memorial, which was begun by Paul Dardé in 1924 and inaugurated in 1932. It stands close to the old station and Gare Routier. I must have passed this many times without realising. Having had my curiosity raised, I was about to put that right.
I had learned that this monument is unique, and wished to compare it with the others . But when I got there I was frustrated to find the gates locked. I could only survey it from a distance. This was not at all satisfactory.
