This World War I memorial is situated in a landscaped area at the junction of Victoria Road and Link Street. The wording on the central stone plaque reads:

1914 – Great War – 1918

Erected by the Residents

– Camps Bay –

In Honour of their Comrades

Who Answered

The Call of Duty

To the left and the right are two stone plaques listing the fallen. Above the central stone plaque is a metal plaque with the words “Our Glorious Dead”, listing an additional six names.

At the top of the memorial, attached to the wooden beam, is a more recent metal plaque with the wording “Tin hat and Light of Remembrance placed on the memorial in memory of fallen comrades, by Desert Shellhole Moths Camps Bay on 29-4-1990”. The tin hat and lamp rest on the stone ledge below the plaque.
