The Port Sunlight war memorial is as fine as any I have ever seen, and one of the largest in the UK. It was unveiled in 1921, after WWI, but now carries the names of all the Lever Brothers employees killed in both world wars. It was designed by the Welsh sculptor Sir William Goscombe John. It's theme is 'The Defence of the Realm' and it includes figures of women and children, as well as military personnel. Lever had been concerned that Britain would be invaded during WWI and, despite being 63, he joined a local volunteer corps (forerunner of WWII's Home Guard).
