About the memorial: Grade II listed war memorial at Barker’s Pool in Sheffield city centre consists of a 90ft flagpole with a very ornate base. On this base, four life-size bronze soldiers face outward with heads bowed and rifles reversed. As well as foliate decoration with acanthus and laurel leaves, the base is sculpted with emblems of the Army, the Navy, the Air Force, the Yorkshire Dragoons, the Royal Artillery, Royal Engineers, Machine Gun Corps, Tank Corps, York and Lancaster Regiment, Medical Corps and the Royal Army Service Corps. The paving and plinth below this are made of Derbyshire Hopton Wood stone. The flag pole is a mild steel ship’s mast and is topped off by a finial coronet. The memorial stands next to the City Hall.
