The Drummer Boy
Seated on a pile of trophies of war the drummer boy beats out the advance at the Battle of Blenheim whilst a look of horror is on his face as he sees the carnage of war all about him.
A detail from the memorial to the King's Regiment Liverpool, to be found in St. Johns Gardens at the rear of St George's Hall.
The King's Regiment Liverpool is one of the oldest regiments of the british Army, formed in 1685 and numbered as the 8th (King's) Regiment of Foot. After 273 years of continuous service the regiment was merged with the Manchesters in 1958. There are numerous battle honours including Blenhein, Malplaquet, Martinique and many more.
