Description:This view was taken inside the Memorial looking west at one of the two large bronze sculptures symbolising loss and sacrifice which stand on either side of a central bronze laurel wreath. The sculptures were created by Ian Rank-Broadley and this one was designed so that at 11.00 a.m. on the 11 November annually, the sun's rays may shine through a gap in the door of the sculpture to appear on the wreath in the centre of the Memorial. The figure on the left points towards the opening in the doorway and the world beyond.
