Description
On the South wall is a glazed paper roll of honour, in an oak frame with a leaf border and the Lancashire Rose at intervals, and no indication of those who died- the primary subject of this report. At the north side of the west wall is another ROH which commemorates thirteen men, showing their names together with the cause, place and date of death on a pre-printed form. Names are typed in date of death order, and all thirteen are on the previous Roll of Honour, but not all are on the external cross-our reference 500
