Port Sunlight War Memorial
Port Sunlight War Memorial
A distinctive, and possibly unique, war memorial. Tall cross on octagonal podium with eleven surrounding figures and twelve relief panels. Sculptures depict the defence of the home, with freestanding figures - three soldiers, two women and six children. Surrounding the base there are four round-headed, high-relief panels depicting different forces in action- Red Cross (ambulance men with wounded soldiers), Land(gunners), Sea (sailors) and Air Force. At the end of each set of steps, there are two high-relief panels with four children (two boys and two girls) offering a wreath to the soldier as a sign of gratitude. LinkExternal link
