About the memorial: Originally in the Coventry RFA Howitzers Club and Institute building 8 Albert St, Coventry. The club went into liquidation in 2012. It was originally formed by members of the 4th South Midland Howitzer Battery Royal Field Artillery, a pre WW1 Territorial Force unit. After WW1, the club was in the Cheylesmore area of the city before moving to Hillfields . Circa 1971, a new club was built in Albert St, the structure being a representation of an artillery field piece. The front of the bar was decorated with a copper frieze depicting battlefield scenes which continued up the stairs to where the memorial stood.
