Battle Of Britian Memorial @ Embankment, London

I dropped by to see the “Battle Of Britian” Memorial on London’s Embankment recently – I was interested in seeing how a representational sculptor might tackle such a subject today….A frieze of bronze relief panels wraps around two related stone pavilions/gazebo’s. The panels depict scenes of and related to the blitz, as well as the names of air & ground crew etc. The memorial is asked to do a lot – the crests of various squadrons are depicted too. The architecture of the pavilions is quite Post-Modern – a “montage” of broken/discontinuous string courses, mouldings, and slipped panels etc (which I think will date quite badly!)…..
