Plaque. There is an elaborate border round the edge. At centre top is a sunburst with standards in front. Below this is an oval wreath with the words “Roll of Honour” at centre. At bottom left and right are pictures of two buildings, which cannot be made out from the poor photocopy. The names are listed in three columns divided by vertical lines. Beside some of them are letters which accord with the legend below. Additional names are added at the bottom. Lettering is printed with the title in grotesque style of printing, with the names and regiments in Roman capitals.
