Monument characteristics :

Three rough hewn silver grey granite blocks to symbolize the mountain campaigns undertaken by the Army and Air Force and the mountainous seas encountered by the Navy.  The sandstone forecourt symbolizes conflicts in the desert and the evergreen plants symbolize jungle campaigns.
