Rear-Admiral Thomas Tudor Tucker (1775-1852) and Maj-Gen. Sir William Hill (1805-1886). These two military men were brothers-in-law. Kensal Green Cemetery, London. [Click on the images to enlarge them.]
Items associated with each man's branch of the military — Tuckert's anchor, rope, and flag and Hill's hat, sword, and flag — surmount the monuments.
This bas relief combines matters of physical force and intellect as a book, quill pen, and paper, and scales partially cover a sword while a wreath of victory rises above them all.
