WW1 commemorative piece of art

During WWI there was a munitions factory that existed in London End (now Dunlop’s).
To celebrate this historic piece of Beaconsfield History, it was agreed to commission a WW1 statue on a plinth. The aim of this piece of art is to provide a positive change to the community, as it would provide added cultural and historic interest celebrating the role of the Town during WWI. This will be for the enjoyment of all in the town & passers-by. It will of course be of particular significance for those remembering fallen loved ones in any conflict.
