About the memorial: The memorial was destroyed when the centre and east wing of the Royal College of Science building were torn down in 1973-74. The WW1 plaque was designed by Trenwith Wills who designed many other memorials including for the Royal School of Mines (another of the Constituent Colleges that were amalgamated into Imperial College), the Royal Academy and the Royal Institute of British Architects. The WW2 plaque was a very early commission for sculptor Robert J R Thomas. He went on to be a renowned Welsh sculptor and to produce several public sculptures of cultural significance to the Welsh.
