Outside St. George’s Hospital stands this memorial. One could walk by it and not pay much attention to it. However, if one steps up and looks at the gun, soldiers, cement carving (molds), and the information carved into it, there is lots to be learned. Very somber.

The big artilley gun represented in the Hyde Park Corner is not only a simple memorial, but is comemorating the horrors of the First World War, when the artillery was the "creator" of the most brutal deaths and injuries, but also of one of the most heroic soldiers in the war. The imposing stone gun statue is guarded by four... More

A sombre reminder of the woes of war. A sad yet significant memorial that should keep us focused on always seeking peaceful resolutions to conflicts. The stone reliefs are beautifully carved yet depict scenes of war. Truly heart breaking yet beautiful memorial.

Amongst the several memorials on Hyde Park Corner, this is probably the most imposing and eyecatching of them all. It's a great sculpture that becomes a great tribute. So many served in the branches of the Royal Artillery during the Great War, and the artillery had such as impact that it's good to see the memorial being so large and... More

Dedicated to the casualties from the Royal Regiment of Artillery in the First World War, the memorial consists of a huge sculpture of a howitzer, a type of artillery gun with short barrel, surrounded with four bronze figures of artillery men guarding the stone reliefs representing several battle scenes. It is an imposing and reflective memorial, just like the others... More

Different places have differing emotions & impressions that they convey for many reasons.? So as soon as we came across the Royal artillery memorial at Hyde park corner in London I thought deeply about my late father. He was unfortunate enough to be sent over to Burma during the second world war in the second division of the Royal Artllery,in... More

The designer of this fine monument, Charles Jagger, won a Military Cross in the First World War, so was hardly likely to glorify war. Like his other memorials, such as at Paddington Station, or the Shrine of Remembrance in Melbourne (a figure shared with West Kirby), he shows soldiers in a reflective mood. The monument commemorates the officers and men... More

Very near Wellington Arch, the Royal Artillery Memorial is a sculpture in stone recognizing the sacrifices of the Royal Regiment of Artillery during World War I.

This is a small memorial which can be seen very quickly but is very close to several other sights and memorials.

We had taken a long walk through Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park. When we arrived at Hyde Park Corner, we had the opportunity to see a number of interesting statues, memorials and other fascinating structures. One of the most impressive memorials located in this area is the Royal Artillery Memorial. This monument pays tribute to the achievements and sacrifices of... More
