Memorial to the Eagle Squadron
Client: Eagle Squadron
The Memorial to the Eagle Squadrons commemorates those American pilots who, with British colleagues, fought in the three Eagle Squadrons of the Royal Air Force prior to the participation of the United States of America in the Second World War. The Memorial faces Roosevelt’s statue across Grosvenor Square Gardens and comprises a tapering Portland Stone carved by Michael Marriott with the emblems of the three squadrons, together with the names of everyone who served in them. The plinth is crowned with a striking bronze of a Bald Eagle, which was sculpted by Dame Elisabeth Frink.
