About the memorial: It is mounted on a grey granite pedestal, with bronze panels on either side, upon which are the names of the fallen in raised letters. On top of the pedestal is a tall, bronze figure of Peace. This figure originally held in the left hand a winged figure of Victory, and in the right hand a sword covered with a branch of laurel signifying Victory gained through sacrifice. Sadly both these have since disappeared, and the figure is now empty-handed. Unveiled by the Lord Lieutenant of the County of Glamorgan, the Right Hon. The Earl of Plymouth, and dedicated by Rev. Canon Griffith Thomas, Vicar of Llangyfelach. Present: officials of the Morriston War Memorial Committee including Chairman- Captain J. Sydney Davies, Hon .Treasurers - Mr T. R Williams and Rev. Canon Griffith Thomas, Hon. Secretary - Major Philip P. Jones. The sculptor was Mr. Louis Frederick Roslyn who designed several World War I memorials around the UK.
