It was unveiled on 5 April 1922 by Field Marshal Earl Haig, and dedicated by the Bishop of Liverpool, Dr FJ Chavasse. The sculpture now stands on Exchange Flags, close to the Nelson Monument and every 11 November, the ICA host a Remembrance Service that all at Exchange Flags attend to pay their respects.
