The one for the first war of 1921 has a bronze relief on the top with an allegory of victory depicting a Victory between two infantrymen with two torches decorating the corners of the plaque. The one for the Second World War was placed in 1961 and is surmounted at the top by a bronze star with two vertical facies on the sides made up of laurel and oak leaves, also in bronze. At the foot of both bronze flower vases. Both expressions of the historical period in which they were created, they list the names of the fallen.
