And they were wardens of the bridges. When
THE WHITEHALL CENOTAPH. LONDON'S GREATEST MEMORIAL TO THE GLORIOUS DEAD

When detachments of the Allied Armies came to London in 1919 to join in our celebrations of the conclusion of Peace, the original of Sir Edwin Lutyens' Cenotaph was erected in temporary material, without thought of making the monument permanent. The Cenotaph has since become the focussing point of the national observance of our Day of Remembrance. The finished monument was unveiled by King George a week before the second anniversary of Armistice Day.
