While work proceeds on the War Memorial, on two portions of the surrounding temporary wall, a series of panels are in place about the history of the Memorial itself. These panels were on display nearby on Plaza Bridge a year or two ago, so it was a surprise to see them. The Memorial, also called The Response, was designed and overseen by sculptor Vernon March, and his siblings picked up his work after his death in 1930. While it was built to honour the dead of the First World War, it has since done the same for those of the Second World War, the Korean War, and other conflicts. I have more from here to come.
