Description
Ornate marble plaque with three panels, the central one of a classical male figure with flag, the left panel headed by the date "1914" and listing six names with their service details, the right-hand panel surmounted by "1918" and containing a quote about sacrifice and commemoration. At the bottom of the plaque are two small bas reliefs of stretcher bearers and soldiers burying dead comrades.
Inscription
They whom we gratefully commemorate were numbered among those who at the call of King and Country left all that was dear to them, endured hardship, faced danger and finally passed out of the sight of men by the path of duty and self-sacrifice, giving up their own lives that others might live in freedom. Let those who come after see to it that their names be not forgotten.
