Cambridge War Memorial
At the crossroads of Hills Road and Station Road in Cambridge stands the Cambridge War Memorial. It shows a soldier striding in the direction of the town whilst looking back towards the station. Titled ‘The Homecoming’, the statue was designed to represent victory and to honour all of the Cambridgeshire men who had served in the war.
The statue was unveiled to the public at 3pm on Monday 3 July 1922 by Duke of York, who was visiting Cambridge for an agricultural show. The Memorial is the work of the Canadian sculptor Dr Robert Tait Mackenzie.
