An upright slab of Portland Stone bearing a silver-gilded cast figure of the regimental bugle above an engraved inscription.

The regiments represented are: Somerset, Somerset & Cornwall, Duke of Cornwall's, Oxfordshire & Buckinghamshire/Green Jackets, King's Own Yorkshire, King's Shropshire, Durham and Herefordshire. The memorial is placed in a clearing of grass at the head of an oval paved walkway which leads off The Mall.
