The monument is made of white Portland stone and has a height of 12 meters. It was designed by H. Chalton Bradshaw. Five figures represent the dead shelves. They are made of bronze, the work of sculptor Gilbert Ledward from the details of guns defeated Germany. Later, a memorial inscription was added to the monument that the monument is also dedicated to all those guards who died and died between 1939 and 1945. At the foot of the sculptures of soldiers lie wreaths from each of the regiments they presented.
The Guards Memorial, also known as the Guards Division War Memorial is a war memorial dedicated to the Guards Division. It's located just inside St. James Park and appropriately, opposite Horse Guards Parade in London. The memorial takes the form of a cenotaph and commemorates the war dead from the Guards Division in First World War, and of the Household Division in the Second World War and subsequent conflicts. The cenotaph features a 12m high stone obelisk standing on a white stone base with three steps. On a raised platform stands five large bronze sculptures each representing one of the Foot Guards Regiments. The sculptures are larger than life at over 2m tall and depicts the guardsmen standing easy with their rifles resting on the ground. A worthy memorial to the Guards Division.
The Guards Memorial was built to commemorate the wartime deaths of the Guards Division during the First World War, and of the Household Division during the Second World War.
