A stone column surmounted by a bronze figure of Britannia stands in a paved area, against the back wall of which are ten bronze panels with the names of the dead and one with a depiction of the people and machines involved in the conflict. The column bears in incised gold lettering the inscription:

14 JUNE 1982

It also lists all the units which took part in the conflict [not transcribed here]. The names of the dead have also not been transcribed here, since detailed rolls of honour are available at
