Upon the death of Douglas Haig in 1928, a subscription was set up by the townsfolk of Montreuil for the purpose of erecting an equestrian statue in memory of the Field Marshal and his penchant for riding through the Montreuil countryside on horseback. And after the removal of the statue during the German occupation in 1940 the people of Montreuil recovered the mould from the sculptor, Paul Landowski, and recast a new one.
- Paul-Maximilien Landowski (Paris 1875 - Boulogne-Billancourt 1961),
