A group of five soldiers in full equipment coming out of a dug-out and launching an attack. The group surmounts a rectangular base, containing a chamber, which originally had two sets of bronze bronze doors. In the 1950s one of these was removed and a mechanised roll of honour book placed in the front face on the memorial. There are also associated bronze plaques attached to the wall of the church immediately behind the memorial.
