THE UNVEILING OF NORWICH MEMORIAL, AND THE CENOTAPH AT IPSWICH

THE UNVEILING OF NORWICH MEMORIAL, AND THE CENOTAPH AT IPSWICH

Disabled men at Norwich drew lots for the honour of unveiling that city's War Memorial (bottom) in October 1927, the honour falling to Private B. G. Withers. The bronze gilt flambeaux at the terminals are lighted on Remembrance Day. Within the Great Stone of Remembrance in the centre is a copper case containing a roll of the fallen. At Ipswich the greater part of the funds raised was devoted to utilitarian purposes but the simple cenotaph (top), beautifully placed in the public gardens, is an entirely adequate symbol of sacrifice
