Two Rolls of Honour in wood frames behind glass. There is a column at each side with a badge at the halfway point: on one the badges depict the Cross of St. George and the Irish harp; in the second the badges are the Scottish lion and the Union flag. Otherwise the two Roll s are identical. The words “Roll of Honour” are in red letters on a blue background with a crown at centre top.. Below this is the Union flag draped on either side of the dedication. At centre bottom are the dates 1914-1918 in an elaborate frame with scrolled leaves on either side.
The names are handwritten in five columns, handwritten, with the initials given a red background.
