The concrete base memorial is surrounded by a lawn and the core feature is a flat top pyramid of local rocks with a marble plaque (predating the present structure) inscribed 'Lest we forget, Hambledon Edmonton RSSAILA', mounted on the rock face. T-shape concrete wing walls extend from the central feature. Two flagpoles are positioned slightly east of the monument. Bronze plaques, commemorating both World Wars, Korea and Vietnam are fitted to the central feature's concrete base. A larger plaque commemorating the 51st Battalion is secured to the east face of the northern wing wall.
