The statue stands on a hexagonal plinth, which is surrounded by 6 hexagonal plaques laid into the floor of the monument.

In front of the statue, the first plaque is inscribed, “Remember the gallant men and women of Shropshire who gave their lives for God, King and country 1914–18 and 1939-45.” Five other plaques show the county arms of Shropshire, a Croix de Guerre, an empty cross in front of a rising sun, the badge of the King’s Shropshire Light Infantry and the arms of the town of Shrewsbury.
