The Women's Auxiliary Air Foce (WAAF) Memorial represents their badge with the King's Crown emblem.

The cut-out letters on the upper roundel record the important roles that the young women carried out between 1939 and 1945. Light passes through these onto th eplinth below and the words are seen as "shadows of remembrance" in memory of those who lost their lives.
