Colchester:  War and Peace
                        Photos by Sue McPherson, 2001    

War Memorial:  poised above is a winged figure with sword and laurel wreath.
The figure's sword is downpointing rather than held upright or in its sheath.  The laurel wreath, a symbol of victory to winners of early Olympic races, is often used to symbolise honour and distinction. The memorial reads: TO THE GLORIOUS MEMORY OF THE MEN OF COLCHESTER WHO FELL IN THE GREAT WAR  1914 - 18.

St George and Peace:
  the two figures on
  either side of the
  war memorial.
See also The Haymarket Trial Monuments for more on the sword and wreath.
