Twickenham war memorial

Twickenham war memorial Twickenham war memorial

Erection date: 2/11/1921


{On the plinth beneath the Twickenham coat of arms with the motto 'Looking Backward Looking Forward':}
1914 - 1918
To the glorious memory of the men of Twickenham who fell in the great war
Their name liveth for evermore.
And to those who gave their lives in the war of 1939 - 1945.

The other three faces of the plinth feature reliefs of airmen, sailors and unusually, as shown in our photograph, members of the women's voluntary services. (All the panels can be seen on this website). 

Distinctively, apart from featuring women, the statue portrays a joyous soldier, as opposed to the more usual sombre figure.

TW1, Cross Deep, Radnor Gardens

This memorial was positioned here to mark the end of a vista from the north-east where the Star and Garter Home for disabled soldiers and sailors stands on the crest of Richmond Hill.

The bronze plaque showing the naval scene was stolen by metal thieves in 2011 but was replaced in 2012.
