"To the glorious memory of those brave men of Clacton who sacrificed their lives in the Great War and the Second World War". Clacton War Memorial has a two stepped base and double plinth of grey Cornish Granite, and is surmounted by a bronze winged figure of Victory. It was designed by Charles Leonard Hartwell, and unveiled on 6th April 1924 as a permenant testament to the sacrifices made by the members of the local community. Additional inscriptions were added after the Second World War to honour the fallen in that conflict.
The bronze winged figure of Victory sculpture, with her head slighlty downcast, holds a quill in her left hand and a laurel wreath in her right hand.
The Memorial is set within a well laid out and well tended Memorial Garden, and the Memorial Service held here each year attracts many hundreds of people paying thier respects.
