Queen’s Own (Royal West Kent) Regiment Cenotaph, Maidstone, Kent. Upgraded to Grade II*

One of eight cenotaphs Lutyens designed. The Regiment suffered terrible casualties in the war - 26,000 out of its 40,000 serving soldiers. This memorial, two-thirds the size of the Cenotaph in Whitehall, commemorates the 6,866 officers and men who died. It was unveiled on 30 July 1921. Photo courtesy of Tim Skelton
