Until my visit to London, I would have said that a "politically correct war memorial" was an oxymoron, since political correctness nowadays seems to embrace a disdain for all things military. However, I was proved wrong by this memorial:
Yes, that is a memorial to all the fallen animals in British wars. There are statues of dogs, donkeys, horses, and elephants. Remember that the UK is a country that finds it politically uncorrect to build a holocaust memorial (though the Imperial War Museum has a holocaust exhibit) and may well abolish its annual holocaust remembrance day because its considered insulting to Muslims (my history here must be a bit rusty -- I don't remember many Muslims in the SS). Well, never-the-less, we can all rest easier now that we know that the donkey's will be remembered. I know this was supposed to be serious and solemn, but I must admit that the key "tag line" on the monument only got me laughing:
Yeah, as if the human victims of Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, Mao, etc. did have a choice.
