Hong Kong City Hall, The Cenotaph

The Cenotaph (Traditional Chinese: 和平紀念碑), constructed in 1923 and located between Statue Square and the City Hall in Central, Hong Kong,[1] commemorates the dead in the First and Second World War[2] that served in Hong Kong in the Royal Navy, British Army and Royal Air Force. It is an almost exact replica of the Cenotaph in Whitehall, London (designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens and unveiled in 1920 [1]), except that this one in Hong Kong has eight Chinese characters on it.
