Inscription

'Allies' by Lawrence Holofcener, unveiled on 2 May 1995 by Her Royal Highness, The Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon.
A gift from the members of The Bond Street Association to the City of Westminster and the people of London to commemorate 50 years of peace.
{At centre top there is the circular symbol for the Bond Street Association. The body of the plaque contains 94 names of companies/people, who were, presumably, the members of The Bond Street Association at the time.}

The two seated allies are unidentified at the site but with the assistance of our US consultant, Trevor Blake, we can identify them as, left to right: Franklin D Roosevelt and Winston Churchill.
The plaque is in the pavement to the right of the bronze statue.
