Terry Pledge was a British artist, active as an architect and water color painter. He worked together with architect John Hatton Markham (1882-1961). After World War II a new Joint War Memorial Committee was established to commemorate Parliament’s war dead. Initially they hoped to achieve this by extensively modifying the Parliamentary War Memorial in London, but this plan was abandoned. The proposed schemes ranged from replacing the existing stone panels to fixing large etched bronze tablets either side of the reinstated cupola, with all the designed by Pledge.
