The Queens University War Memorial stands in front of the main campus building at University Road, Belfast, Co. Antrim. It features a bronze statue of the winged goddess Victory sustaining a fallen soldier.

Sir Thomas Brock first designed the piece while Arnold Wright oversaw completion after Brock’s death. It was first dedicated on 21st July 1924 in memory of those who died in The Great War. The Duke of York – later King George VI – carried out the proceedings.

Field-Marshal Viscount Alanbrooke rededicated the memorial on 8th November 1950. He was Chancellor of Queens University at the time. The memorial now serves to remember the fallen of The Great War and Second World War.

The names of those killed from Queens University in World War Two are also listed in a Book of Remembrance. This book is held at Queens University, University Road, Belfast, Co. Antrim.
