Latest update - (desktop wallpaper & jigsaws)
Saturday 25th June 2016

A picture for Armed Forces Day, on a day to show support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community. This picture is a close up of one of several bas-reliefs on the Bury War Memorial in Lancashire, by the sculptor Joseph Hermon Cawthra. Cawthra was born (1886) in Baildon in Yorkshire, studied at Salts Art School in Shipley and was elected to the Royal British Society of Sculptors (RBS). Many of his most notable works have been war memorials. These reliefs were exhibited by the Royal Academy prior to installation at Bury.
