The memorial consists of a pair of matching plaques, attached to timber backing boards. One is a roll of honor with three plates listing the names of those from Molong and the surronding district who served in the First World War. The second bears a tribute to families and women war workers. Both plaques are ornately decorated with images of the Australian flag and Union Jack, floral designs and scrolls.
