The figure on the top of the granite column represents winged 'Victory', standing on a globe with a laurel wreath in outstretched right hand, and a trumpet in the left. This sculpture is now used to remember all soldiers and service personnel lost in war. The monument is partially surrounded on its northern, eastern and southern sides, by a wall inscribed and dedicated to 22 named conflicts, from Palestine (1945–1948) to Iraq (2003–2009) plus dedications to those killed in training and non-conflict roles.
