A roll of honour comprising four typwritten A4 sheets in a pole-mounted case. The sheets are arranged on a backing card with the design of the Union Flag within the metal case which is painted green and has a transparent plastic front, although that had been damaged and some of the text was subsequently blurred. It is presumed that the memorial was intended as a commemoration of WW1 and that the sheets had been changed to represent the different casualties during the progression of the war.
