About the memorial: The Troon war memorial is a tall and tapering grey granite pedestal 13' high with a vitruvian scrolled band below the memorial panels and is surmounted by a 10'6" high bronze allegorical figure of Britannia by the sculptor Walter Gilbert of Birmingham. The monument stands on a raised paved area which is backed with a low grey granite wall terminated by low pylons and incorporating a bench for seating. The names of the dead of WWI are listed on bronze tablets on the sides of the pedestal. The names of the dead of WWII are on a bronze tablet which has been set into the face of the bench behind which echos many of the details of the pedestal. It stands on the foreshore esplanade next to the Walker Hall and car park.
