The memorial to the Third British Infantry Division is a natural rock on the beach front with a memorial plaque set on the face.
The inscription reads:
THIS TABLET COMMEMORATES THE
TRAINING OF THE THIRD BRITISH
INFANTRY DIVISION OVER THESE BEACHES
FROM DECEMBER 1943 TO APRIL 1944
PRIOR TO TAKING PART IN THE
INVASION OF EUROPE ON 6 JUNE 1944

SILENT WE CAME
SILENT WE LEFT
TO STRIKE A BLOW FOR FREEDOM
