A new war memorial, commissioned by Southwark Council, was unveiled in November 2018 at Walworth Square which forms part of the Elephant and Castle regeneration area.

The bronze sculpture, created by Scottish artist Kenny Hunter, depicts an anonymous 12 year-old boy standing on a giant upturned ash tree, inscribed with an excerpt from a second world war poem by Hamish Henderson: "Against the armour of the storm, I’ll hold my human barrier".
