Daedalus Memorial in the US


 

The Memorial

A bronze sculpture of Daedalus from British sculptor James Butler, R.A., is installed at Maxwell Air Force Base on West Drive to commemorate the centennial of the WWI and the WWI pilots for whom the order of the Daedalians was established at Maxwell AFB in 1934.  This gift to Maxwell AFB is made by the Croix Rouge Farm Memorial Foundation through the generosity of longtime community and business leader Nimrod T. Frazer, Silver Star.

A previous casting of this bronze Daedalus, the Fleet Air Arm Memorial, stands on the Victoria Gardens embankment in London.

Inauguration

The memorial was inaugurated at the Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery, Alabama, on April 6, 2017.
