IWM Register entry in full - A stone column topped by a sculpted figure of an angel holding a stone shield with the current regimental insignia of the regiment. (The angel is possibly Archangel Michael as the angel appears to be on top of serpentine carvings.) The column is composed of four sections: the bottom section and two top sections are individual circular shapes providing support for a narrow central section adorned with stone shields representing the founding regiments of the Yorkshire Regiment (including the Green Howards, the Prince of Wales's Own Regiment of Yorkshire and the Duke of Wellington's (West Riding) Regiment). The column is fixed to a two-stepped base of the same stone.
