The pillar stands approximately five metres high and is 4.5 metres wide at its base. The monument is protected by a base made up of granite boulders I.0 metres deep and 900mm high.
The grey granite memorial consists of a tapering cairn of large blocks standing on a rubble plinth. Sixty names are inscribed in gold painted lettering on a black marble tablet placed at the base of the front face of the memorial.
The memorial originally had a granite name tablet but this was replaced by the current one due to vandalism and erosion of the names.
