Throwback Thursday: Cunard War Memorial, Liverpool

The Cunard War Memorial is on the west side of the Cunard Building and is a memorial to Cunard employees killed during the First World War, and then the Second. Designed by the architect Arthur Davis it was built around 1920 although it wasn’t officially unveiled until the next year by the Earl of Derby.

The bronze statue, said to represent Victory, was by Henry Pegram and shows Victory standing above the prow of a Roman ship. The Pro Patria on the base is Latin meaning “For One’s Country”.
