‪This is a very impressive and sizeable monument that sits opposite the entryway to Hyde Park. Well constructed and on point.‬

‪The Royal Artillery Memorial is a First World War memorial located on Hyde Park Corner in London that was unveiled in 1925. The memorial commemorates the 49,076 soldiers from the Royal Artillery killed in the First World War. The memorial consists of a Portland stone cruciform base supporting a one-third over-lifesize sculpture of a howitzer artillery field gun. At the end of each arm of the cross is a sculpture of a soldier. An officer at the front (south side), a shell carrier on the east side, a driver on the west side, and at the rear (north) a dead soldier. Whilst not the most impressive memorial I have ever seen it is never the less an important one that deserves a look.
Quite close by is the more impressive memorial of RAF Bomber Command.‬

‪More Somber in December Weather

We were back to London in December, and did not experience ideal weather, but when we visited the Royal Artillery Memorial, at the meeting of Hyde and Green Parks, the weather, and gloominess of the day, added a new dimension to the somber nature of this memorial.

As we walked around the Memorial, it was easy to be taken back to the First World War, in the cold, the mist and light rain. Though gloomy, in all respects, the Memorial reflected more, on what those artillery teams faced - and why they were being so honored for their perseverance and bravery.

Even in the light rain, we just braced ourselves, and spent a good 30 minutes at the Memorial. It was a totally different experience, than what we encountered on our visit, on a lovely Autumn day, back in September. That is why we visit this monument, at different times of the year - it just feels, and looks so different.‬

‪A Lovely Memorial Near Hyde Park Corner

In September, we spent quite a bit of time in Hyde Park, and wandered over to the little area, where Hyde and Green Parks come together. On this lovely Autumn day, we visited the Royal Artillery Memorial, again.

The morning light lent a magic to the Howitzer, atop the monument looked even more realistic, than usual, sitting high atop the plinth.

We also paused, to look more carefully, at the four bronze soldiers, around the plinth. They too, looked as though they could walk down, and stand among us.

This is a fitting tribute to the Royal Regiment of Artillery, in the first World War.

I allocated about 30 mins to this statue/memorial, and depending one the weather, found that to be just about right. Also, in the immediate vicinity, there are at least a half-dozen other worthy memorials, and statues, so one has a lot to see, in a smallish area.‬

‪Made by Charles Sargeant Jagger and opened in 1925 this large stone monument lies in the popular Hyde Park Corner. We saw this from a bus tour only as we had no time to stop.‬

‪Huge stone monument with evocative and vivid panels carved with scenes from military engagements. The main plinth is dominated by a huge sculpture of a field gun, below which stands a bronze statue of a soldier from the Royal Artillery. This is one of a number of memorials in nthe open space in the middle of the Hyde Park Corner one way system and probably the most impressive of them, apart from the Wellington Arch. It was unveiled in 1925 to mark the sacrifice of the members of the regiment who died in WW1. Hard not to feel emotional when you visit this.‬

‪This memorial has familly resonanve, as my great-uncle was a gunner killed in action at Passchendaele. The depiction of a fallen soldier is the most moving part and I found myself in tears as it was so unexpeted. Too often, war is depicted as a glorious thing, but this memorial makes you realise the reality of the loss of the fallen.‬

‪Just across the road from Hyde Park Corner this is a seriously impressive memorial monument - and the casualty figures it commemorates are astonishing. As a bonus the park also features the very impressive Austrlian War Memorial Monument and yet another memorial to Wellington (though also impressive).‬
