Animals War Memorial

There is another memorial to the animals that died in the First World War not too far from us. The RSPCA Animals War Memorial Dispensary in Cambridge Terrace (Kilburn Park Road) was opened in 1931. The bronze relief above the door is by Frederick Brook Hitch (1897 - 1957), and shows the winged figure of Victory giving wreathes to the animals that served in the War. You can read a contemporary report of the opening of the clinic here.
