Memorial to Sir Donald Bailey
Memorial to Sir Donald Bailey, inventor of the Bailey Bridge which, as written by Field Marshall Montgomery: made an immense contribution towards ending World War II. As far as my own operations were concerned, with the eighth Army in Italy and with the 21 Army Group in North West Europe, I could never have maintained the speed and tempo of forward movement without large supplies of Bailey Bridging.
Sir Donald Bailey is buried at St Peter’s, Bournemouth.
Memorial to Percy Bysshe Shelley
Sculpted by Henry Weekes 1807-1877.
Verse forty of fifty-five of Shelley’s Adonaïs: An Elegy on the Death of John Keats, Author of Endymion, Hyperion, etc:
He has out-soared the shadow of our night;
Envy and calumny, and hate and pain,
And that unrest which men miscall delight,
Can touch him not and torture not again;
From the contagion of the world’s slow stain
He is secure, and now can never mourn
A heart grown cold, a head grown gray in vain;
Nor when the spirit’s self has ceased to burn,
With sparkless ashes load an unlamented urn.
