The solitary soldier atop Tonga’s Cenotaph was removed from Pangai Si'i on November 5 and crossed Taufa’ahau Road where, dangling from a crane and in the protective arms of a serviceman, he was lowered to a new position next to the National Flag Station - in time for Remembrance Sunday Service tomorrow November 8.
