The monument is a broad, concrete column. On the front, an image of a Lancaster aeroplane is visible in relief. On top of the column a text can be read, with on top a glass plate. On it are, among other things, the names of the deceased. Seven tiles in different colours have been applied to the base, symbolising the seven deceased soldiers.
