"The central relief, which contains the inscription, is in coloured plaster, as are the rosettes, three of which are missing. The two remaining rosettes show traces of gilding.

According to E. Machell Cox, in his Commemorative Catalogue to an Exhibition of Models and Designs by the late Sir Alfred Gilbert (1936), this is the working model for a memorial to be carried out in marble and bronze. It is not known whether the memorial was ever erected." (Source: V&A)
