The ninth Duke of Wellington has unveiled a new memorial to the allied soliders killed in the Battle of Waterloo 200 years ago.
The memorial was devised and designed by SE1-based artist Jason Brooks – who also led the Dog & Pot project – and funded by the London Mint Office.
The centrepiece of the memorial is a bronze replica of the Waterloo campaign medal depicting Nike, the Greek Goddess of Victory.
The Waterloo Memorial is on the balcony above the concourse of Waterloo Station.
The unveiling of the memorial is part a series of Waterloo 200 events taking place in the Waterloo locality.
The Duke of Wellington will return to SE1 on Friday evening when he is one of the panellists on a live broadcast of Radio 4's Any Questions? from St John's Waterloo.
