Victory Celebrations at the Victoria Memorial after World War I -

Description:
The First World War was a highly traumatic experience for Britain, and led to the loss of nearly a million lives. In addition to this, a further 1.5 million men were wounded. Hostilities in the War ceased with the signing of the Armistice on 11th November 1918, and formal peace with Germany came with the Treaty of Versailles, signed on 28th June 1919. This photograph marks the formal celebrations of the Allied victory of 1918 on 19th July 1919. In this image, the column of marching soldiers is shown moving down The Mall, and past the Victoria Memorial, a Grade I Listed Building standing in front of Buckingham Palace.
