The Machine Gun Corp Memorial, also referred to as the Boy David Memorial, is one of several commemorative monuments found at the southeast corner of Hyde Park.
This is an interesting monument dedicated to the machine gunners who lost their lives during WWI. The memorial was designed by Francis Derwent in 1925 and features a young David, hence the name. On both sides of the statue figure, you will see Vickers machine guns encased in bronze.
The memorial makes a nice addition to the collection that can be found at this area of the city and can be quickly seen for those who intend to spend time in this area of the city.
Other monuments here include the the Wellington Arch, Duke of Wellington Statue, Royal Artillery Memorial, New Zealand Memorial, Australia Memorial and across the street in Green Park, you can see the Bomber Command Memorial.
