Memorial prior to its unveiling ceremony

The Union Flag appears to be incorrectly positioned for when statically displayed, the hoist is on the observer's left. To fly the flag correctly, the white of St Andrew is above the red of St Patrick in the upper hoist canton (the quarter at the top nearest to the flag-pole).
