To the memory of the men who went from this museum and fought and fell in the war, 1914 - 1918.
{List of 11 names in alphabetical sequence}

They shall grow not old
As we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them
Nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun
And in the morning
We will remember them.
