Description
A three-sided column of two sections of polished green granite with a pyramid-shaped top supporting a sculpture of an elephant's head, the elephant holding a sword in its trunk. Each of the faces of the column has an engraving of the Association's elephant logo above an inscription in white lettering. The column has a shallow base of the same granite. The memorial is fixed to a triangular shaped base of flagstones. Embedded in the grass alongside the memorial is a small rectangular stone block with a further inscription describing the origins of the Association.
