About the memorial: A limestone obelisk with inscriptions on limestone panels around the base and bronze panels with the names of those commemorated. Arranged at the four corners above the base are seated figures holding bronze models of a battleship, a tank, an aeroplane, and what seems to be the RAMC emblem of a snake around a staff. Therefore it seems this memorial principally recalls the service of those in the navy, RFC/RAF and the Tank Corps and RAMC.
