IN UNDYING MEMORY
OF THE MEN AND WOMEN
OF BOLTON WHO GAVE
THEIR LIVES IN THE
GREAT WAR 1914-1919
Lest we forget.

"At the time of the unveiling in July 1928, of the Bolton war memorial, designed by Mr A J Hope, it was regretted that the
twp groups of bronze figures 'Peace Restraining War' and 'Peace Seeing the Horrors of War' were not at the time ready, and might not be until Armistice Day 1929. It was not in fact
until just before Armistice Day 1932 that the bronzes were
finally placed in position on the memorial after considerable
complaint and correspondence in the local press. The sculptor, Mr W Marsden of South kensington, had apparently been 'waiting for inspiration'."

TO THE GLORIOUS MEMORY OF THE OFFICERS,
NCOS AND MEN OF THE BOLTON ARTILLERY
