London: Prudential Second World War Panels

Status: Listed Grade II*
Architect: F.V. Blundstone, 1950
Location: Waterhouse Square, London

’s second memorial for the central office is in two parts, made of bronze and topped with ornamental terracotta on a granite and brick base. The north panel lists names A-K, the second K-Z. Each is topped with a broken pediment set around a wreath, with a figure of St George on top. St George was a common character used in war memorials, but those of the Great War or Second World War often used contemporary-style portraits, associating the ‘Tommy’ solider with the traditional hero. These carry spears with wreaths and banners, and shields with the St George’s flag.
