About the memorial: The war memorial in the former mining village of Thurnscoe in the Dearne valley in South Yorkshire is a sandstone pillar with a moulded top on which stands a statue of an infantryman in uniform holding a rifle and standing on rough ground. On the front face of the pillar is a unusual feature, that being a metal plaque on which is an engraving of a winged figure holding a sword in one had and an upraised laurel wreath in the other. The figure wears a laurel wreath and is depicted standing on an outcrop of rock. The large feathered wings and the sword are outlined in white and the laurel wreaths in green; the rest of the picture is outlined in black. There are metal plaques with dedications and rolls of honour on the other faces of the pillar. The pillar stands on a plinth, to which there are fixed other plaques, and three limestone steps on a concrete base. The base of the memorial is surrounded by four brick “corners”. The memorial is in Thurnscoe Park on the High Street.
