Two silhouette First World War soldiers now grace Greyfriars Green as a reminder of the sacrifice made by so many and a tribute to mark the 100th anniversary of the Armistice.
The soldiers are part of a Royal British Legion project called 'There But Not There' and are a symbol of the many who never made it back home.
They have been bought by the Council, with proceeds going to help the charity work of the RBL.
The project aims to commemorate those who died in the First World War, while educating today's generations about a war that claimed the lives of 888,246 British and Commonwealth service personnel.
Funds from the sale will help today’s veterans who are suffering from the mental and physical wounds of their service.
Cllr Abdul Salam Khan said: "So many servicemen and women sacrificed their lives so we can enjoy the freedoms that we do now and it is right that Coventry and its people recognise the service they gave to our country."
