ROLL OF HONOUR 1914  1919 

Philip Waters is noted as having been awarded the Belgian Croix de Guerre, and W. Archer the Military medal.

The legend in the left hand panel contains biblical quotations matched to symbols for death, physical injury, imprisonment or mental injury.  These symbols are then seen against relevant names in the Roll.

The Mizpah quotation seems to be meant to apply to the whole board and its position suggests that the last quotation (for mental injury) was a late addition.

(Two of the biblical references are incorrect, as shown below.)
