Description
Crucifix within a wooden cabinet which can be opened up to resemble a triptych formation. At the top of the cabinet is a pediment in which is the start of the dedication. Lettering is in gold. The words 'Roll of Honour' are written on the inside of the two doors that open up to reveal the crucifix. On one side of the crucifix beneath the horizontal bar are the names of those who served and on the other side are the names of those who died. At the base of the cabinet is a small brass plaque detailing the origin of the wood.
