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.
