Provenance:

From a house belonging to the Meredith Williams family, 1978.

Designed in 1922 for the competition to produce a War Memorial to commemorate the 1953 servicemen from Paisley that perished in WW1. The final bronze figural piece, depicting a mounted Crusader flanked by four British Infantrymen was called

Spirit of the Crusaders

and was mounted onto a granite cenotaph designed by Sir Robert Lorimer. It was formally unveiled on 27 July 1924 and is located at the junction of Gilmour Street and Moss Street in the town.

Williams also collaborated with her husband on the design of friezes for the Scottish National Monument at Edinburgh Castle. A larger bronze maquette is in the collection of the National Museum of Wales.
