About the memorial:
The memorial stands in the garden/forecourt of Malvern Library and takes the form of a bronze sculpture of a winged, young boy representing the Spirit of Youth, standing with his arms stretched upwards, holding a flaming torch; at his feet is a crown of thorns. The sculpture stands on a tapering, rectangular-on-plan, stone pedestal which, in turn, sits on a square-on-plan, stone plinth; the pedestal is inscribed, 'TO THOSE WHO / NOBLY SERVED / 1914 - 1919'. Below the plinth there is a two-stepped, square-on-plan stone base which sits upon an additional three-stepped, square-on-plan stone base which was added c.2008.
