Unveiled September 24th 1924 by Sir Frederick Mills. Made by the Craftsmen’s Guild, London.
Construction of grey granite. Tall tapering pedestal with concave base, and tall bronze plaques each side with inscriptions.

Corner posts are linked to intervening low pylonic granite posts by two rows of chain-link.
