    The figures are by Charles Sargeant Jagger, who did many excellent Bronze figures for memorials. The soldier figure has been recast and is now part of the Drivers and Wipers Memorial in Australia

    The Driver figure on the other side is also by Jagger and the original is from the RA memorial at Hyde Park in London

    Yes, those words "To you from failing hands..." come from 'In Flanders Fields' a poem by John McCrae, a Canadian Army Surgeon in WW1.
