A bronze standing figure of the Commander-in-Chief of India (during the Mutiny), set on a tall circular granite pedestal with a bronze figure of Britannia seated on a lion. Lord Clyde is shown wearing the informal uniform of patrol jacket, corduroy breeches, and high boots. The coat is buttoned only at the throat, with hunting boots. An old-fashioned cavalry sword, supposedly given to him by Lord Hardinge, hangs from his belt. A telescope case hangs from a strap at his side and he carries in his left hand a solar helmet of the type which he had recommended for use by the Indian Army. The statue stands on a cylindrical pedestal on a square base. Upon a lower granite base projecting in front of this is a female figure personifying Victory, seated on the back of a couchant British lion.
