This Roll of Honour is very difficult to photograph clearly in one photo - it is about four feet high and three feet wide, from dado to ceiling height in a narrow part of the passage.  The photo above has been digitally enhanced to look straight, to the detriment of the detail.  However the individual portraits have also been photographed and two galleries appear here, A-M and P-W.  The portraits are named, with some ranks, regiments and ships mentioned.  Some are annotated 'Killed'.

A post has been written which explains what we know so far about this memorial and the building in which it can be found. Apparently the photo above shows the second version of the Roll of Honour. Both are shown in the post linked here.

Where further information on a name has been researched by our volunteers it will be linked here  (look for the names in blue) to a page on this site or to an external site.
