Sir: Concerning the controversy surrounding the erection of a statue to Baron Britten of Aldeburgh, I note that the citizens of that town were happy to immortalise Snooks, the dog owned by Drs Robin and Nora Acheson, who died in 1959 and 1981. A statue of the little dog has recently been erected on the front at Aldeburgh as a memorial to this couple. The medical profession must take heart that their work is not considered to be "ephemeral".
