Monument to Colin Campbell, Field Marshal Lord Clyde by Baron Carlo Marochetti (1805-1867). Unveiled 1867. Bronze, granite, and marble. Waterloo Place, London [Click on these images and those below for larger pictures.]

Interestingly, the base of the monument has Clyde's birthdate, 1792, but no year following "died" (Clyde died in 1863). "As commander-in-chief in India he brought the the Indian Mutiny to an end in 1858" (Bullus and Asprey 235). Cf. John Henry Foley's statue of him in Glasgow's George Square, which was unveiled in the following year.

Britannia, who sits on the British lion, rests her sword against the lion's flank and extends a symbol of peace.

The left photograph provides a clear view of the contrasting symbols of olive branch and sword, and the right of Britannia's profile and the lion's head.
