Description
Two nowy headed plaques surmounted by sculpted figures of knights in armour. The knights carry a standard and wreath each in their left hand and rest their right hand upon a shield. The names are inscibed in raised lettering in five columns on both plaques. A raised wreath is top centre bearing the dedication inscription. The plaques were originally wall mounted at either side of the entrance arch. They have since been relocated to flank the entrance doorway to Waterhouse Square building.
