The memorial is located in St Peter’s Square, Hereford. It takes the form of a three-stepped base surmounted by octagon plinth and Eleanor cross enclosed by white painted, metal, railings. There are Regimental crests on the sides of the pedestal and the figures of a soldier, nurse, sailor and an airman holding an aircraft propeller depicted on the cross.
