The central figure represents Civilisation, seated as a Queen upon a throne. One her lap, the Book of Law is upheld by two crouching guardian angels. The wings on her back form a canopy providing shelter to the small groups representing Labour, Education and in the centre, the Home. New life growing out of old is represented by the butterfly emerging from a chrysalis and a spray of mistletoe emerges from within laurels.
With her left hand she bids attention by its upraised gesture and in her right she holds an orb in the shape of the world. To show that peace reigns in the world, the four corners are represented by four small figures which are in turn suppported by doves holding a single band which connects east to west: the whole world bound to together in one brotherhood. Under her feet, writhe Bloodshed, Corruption, Dispair ands Strife.
The names of the fallen are given in raised bronze letters which rest on a pedestral of Devonshire granite in the form of four crosses in one. (information taken from the 2019 Order of Service)
