The Commonwealth Memorial Gates are a war memorial located at the Hyde Park Corner end of Constitution Hill in London. They commemorate the armed forces of the British Empire from five regions of the Indian subcontinent (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka), as well as Africa and the Caribbean, who served in the First World War and the Second World War. The memorial was inaugurated in 2002.
A short inscription quotes the words of the Nigerian author and poet Ben Okri:
“Our Future is Greater Than Our Past.”
