King's Royal Rifle Corps Memorial

John Tweed (1869-1933)

1922

Bronze

Cathedral Close, Winchester

The city of Winchester has had a long tradition of training the rifle brigades: see also the memorials to Lieutenant-Colonel Charles Berkley Pigott and others inside the cathedral. The inscription on another memorial by Tweed, in Grosvenor Place, London, "records that 11,375 men of the Rifle Brigade fell in the 1914-19 war" ("Tweed, John").
