About the memorial: Five arches on six pillars. The centre arch contains an allegorical figure; the two left hand arches show battle honours from 1685 to 1880, and the right hand two arches give the names of those lost in the Zulu War of 1878-1879. A brass plaque below gives the explanatory inscription. The list of options provided in the drop-down menus does not really have a good word for it - "Arcade" is a close enough. The memorial is on the north wall of the North Transept, part of a group of SLI Memorials and Window. No IWM Archive entry found - possibly wrongly assumed to be related to the adjacent Boer War Memorial.
