If it were not dated September 1931, exactly nine years before the first bomb attacks on St Paul’s, Stephen Bone’s panel might be mistaken for an iconic image of the Second World War. Far from achieving peace, ’the war to end wars’, which cost seventeen million lives, was but a terrible prelude to the sixty million deaths resulting from the Second World War.
