WAR MEMORIAL AT QUEEN’S UNIVERSITY PHOTOGRAPHED MARCH 2022
This memorial commemorates the employees and students of Queen’s University who were killed or missing in World War I (253 named people) and World War II (155 named people).
The war memorial in front of Queen’s University is an example of Ideal sculpture by Sir Thomas Brock (who also designed a nearby statue of Queen Victoria), with a beautiful Art Nouveau angel of heroic scale supporting a dying soldier. The University building itself has a grand Elizabethan frontage, and is the work of prominent Belfast architect Sir Charles Lanyon.
