An infantryman in Boer War campaign dress, with his slouch hat tipped back. He is holding a rifle with fixed bayonet. The statue stands on the plain cornice of the rough-hewn pink granite plinth. The plinth is raised on a two-stepped base. The statue is a replica of the original by Adolphus Edwin Lane Rost (1867–1940), stolen in 2006. The figure was replaced and the memorial re-sited in 2008.
