This statue of St George and Dragon was designed by Charles Leonard Hartwell and was unveiled on September 26 1923 as the official City memorial to those from the city who were killed on active service during the First World War . St George is the patron saint of the Northumberland Fusiliers. The memorial was rededicated following a 12-month, million pound facelift to Eldon Square in 2008.
