About the memorial: War memorial in Classical style, erected in August 1861 by the First Battalion of the Royal Rifles to commemorate their fallen comrades of the Indian campaigns of 1857, 1858 and 1859. Tapering square granite pillar with moulded plinth and two-stepped base with rusticated tops. Surmounting the cornice is a pyramidal cap and below it are bronze swags. The front face has a bronze trophy with a lion's head mask. Memorial set on roundabout. The memorial was chipped by bomb damage during the first moonlight seaplane raid on Dover on 23 January 1916. The cast iron boundary railings were probably lost as a result of the Government's 1941 order to requisition all post-1850 iron gates and railings for the war effort.
