Another admirably designed panel is that put up to the design of Mr. Laurence Turner in the Lombard Street head office of Barclays Bank. This panel is in three sections, the two lateral ones bearing the names of men employed by two banks incorporated with Barclays towards the end of the War. Mr. Henry Rushbury, A.R.A., is responsible for the tablet in ebony and ivory put up by Lloyds Bank in the Lombard Street office, and Mr. T. B. Whinney, the architect, for that at the Midland Bank in Thread-needle Street. Professor Beresford Pite designed the marble slab in the entrance to the Board of Education offices; Mr. W. Reid Dick, R.A., the sculptor of the Kitchener Memorial in S. Paul's, the tablet surmounted by a figure of Icarus in the offices of Rolls-Royce, Ltd.

Finally, I must mention the memorial tablet, designed by Mr. F. Arnold Wright, in the Public Trustee Office, Kingsway. On this tablet, which is surmounted by a bronze statuette, is inscribed "Valiant-for-Truth's" farewell speech from "Pilgrim's Progress": "Then said he My Sword I give to him that shall succeed me in my Pilgrimage and my Courage and Skill to him that can get it. My Marks and Scars I carry with me to be a witness for me that I have fought His Battles Who now will be my Rewarder… So he passed over, and all the Trumpets sounded for him on the other side." It is a long quotation, but one which sums up the aspirations of most of the memorials of the Great War in London, described in this chapter.
