    A bit of a long wait, I'm afraid, but..........

    Where would you find a replica of a British national monument replicated as a WW1 Memorial?

    I thought for sure it had to be in Sussex ... but I've been sidetracked looking at the Pavillion in Brighton ...... :p

    Used as a hospital for Indian soldiers, wasn't it?

    Yes ! it was used as a base to care for wounded Indian troops serving with the British army in World War One ..... it was believed that the Indian-influenced architecture would provide a suitable place for their convalescence !

    Alas, the man didn't survive long enough to fly the Austin-Ball AFB 1, to which he contributed a umber of suggestions based on his experience. It was a good aeroplane, but by the time the prototype emerged the Sopwith Camel and SE 5a were already in full production and it wasn't considered worthwhile to introduce a third fighter type.

    Annie and Spidge, I'm afraid not. :p

    As you are obviously all struggling, the literary clue first: Thomas Hardy described the original in Tess of the D'Urbervilles as "A very Temple of the Winds".
