About the memorial: A stone cenotaph, holding brass plaques with inscriptions & names, in the centre of a paved area backed by a wall with piers at either end holding brass plaques. There are three steps leading to the platform. Therre are inscriptions in Latin on the cenotaph and walls. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ City of London West Walk: This memorial is full of Latin wording which reflects the still used terminology used in the court system. The dates on the end piers begin (I) which is not the normal way of denoting “1000”. It is thought that this format is Etruscan and that the Roman symbol “M” derived from it as it could look like “m”. The lists of names are headed by the term “FILII SOCIOREM” (Sons of the Allies). Along the tops of the walls are the words “SANGUINEM PRO PATRIA LARGITIS” ( in memory of those who gave blood for their country) and “HOSPITIUM SOCIIS FILIIS PARENTES” (respect your fellow sons who died). The Inns of Court regiment was formed in the 16th century to defend Britain from the Spanish Armada, later they were called to fight the Jacobite rebellion & the Gordon Riots. William Pitt served in the Company. If you look at the forenames on the plaques there is a clear indication of the social class from which those who died belonged, some of them are names associated with women but for example “Joyce” means “experienced in war” Now visit the Lincoln’s Inn chapel to your right above the cloisters and find an Inns of Court WWI plaque in this attractive building. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Route:
