Description
A column surmounted by a Mercat cross on an octagonal plinth with four shields attached to sides. The plinth bears the inscription and names of those commemorated, with snake-like supports for further shields above. Shields includes those from the Royal Scots, Royal Scots Greys, Scots Guards, Gordon Highlanders, KOSB, Royal Artillery, and Royal Scots Fusiliers. The whole sits on an octagonal two stepped base in a paved area bounded by a low wall and fence. A tablet on an adjacent wall with a laurel wreath positoned top centre and torch postioned centrally commorates those lost during the Second World War.
