Description
An upright, oblong, wall mounted, nowy-headed oak board with a moulded cornice following the semicircular head. The original WW1 board has a low raised border and the WW2 addition at the foot extends that design to create an apparent whole. The board is heavily varnished in a dark colour and the inscription and names are painted in mixed styles of sentence case gilded lettering. The names are arranged in two columns, the WW1 casualties being listed in order of their death by exact date where known.
