March A starts on the Embankment, not that far from:
• Bank station, where 117 civilians lost their lives in a direct hit from a German bomb in 1941.
• Monument, built to remember the firestorm that destroyed the capital in 1666.
• Cleopatra's Needle, a Middle-Eastern artefact deported miles from its cultural home.
• The Crimea Memorial, cast from Russian cannons captured at the Battle of Sebastopol.
The march passes through Parliament Square and up Whitehall, past statues to:
• Oliver Cromwell, instigator of a bloody civil war in Stuart times.
• Viscount Montgomery of Alamein, the celebrated desert fighter of World War Two.
• The Cenotaph, national memorial to the millions killed in World War One.
On through Trafalgar Square, home to:
• Nelson's Column, erected in honour of the admiral killed in battle while defeating the Spanish.
• Sir Henry Havelock, veteran of the first Indian mutiny and served in wars against Burma and Afghanistan.
• Sir Charles Napier, leader of the conquest of the hill tribes of Sindh, now part of Pakistan.
• Admiralty Arch, once home to the offices of the British Empire's all-conquering naval forces.
Meanwhile March B has passed by:
• Tottenham Court Road station, where a huge underground shelter was built in 1942 to protect Londoners during air raids.
• Eros, the famous statue of the Greek god of love, and therefore a bit out of place in this list.
The two marches join at Piccadilly Circus and proceed to Hyde Park, passing close to:
• The Wellington Arch, built to celebrate the Duke's defeat of the French at the battle of Waterloo.
• Marble Arch station, hit by a German bomb during the Blitz in 1940, killing 17 Londoners sheltering there.
• Tyburn, site of public executions for petty criminals and dissenters for over 600 years.
