St. John’s Garden – Kings Regiment & Gladstone Monument
Gladstone Monument  – by Thomas Brock.
It is in memory of W. E. Gladstone, a former Prime Minister, who was born in Liverpool and who died in 1898. He stands atop a blocky edifice, with two stern angels seated below representing Truth and Justice . The one has a crown and holds a book and flowers; she is Truth. The other, Justice, wears a helmet, and carries her unsheathed sword, her scales resting beside her.
King’s Regiment Memorial  – by the W Goscombe John.
Four figures in all adorn the memorial – to left and right, standing soldiers, flanking a central heap of flag, wreath, palm leaf etc, above which is the central figure of Britannia, a statuesque soldierly figure wearing a helmet and cowl which make her look rather symbolist. But it is on the rear of the monument where the most important statue is, the famous drummer boy, of which a version may also be seen in the National Museum of Wales.
