Erection date: 30/6/1929

Inscription

In glorious memory of the gallant officers, N.C.O.'s and men of the 1st and 2nd London Welsh Battalions, Royal Welch Fusiliers who laid down their lives at the call of King & country in the Great War, 1914 - 1918.
"Mewn anghof ni chant fod"
These battalions were recruited at Gray's Inn

{At the bottom in very small font:}
The Morris Singer Co. SW1

{At the top of the shield shape is a roundel with the words "Royal Welsh Fusiliers" around a fleur-de-lys.}

That's not a typo in the transcription - The RWF used the spelling Welch in their title, although its use is not consistent in this memorial.
It was unveiled on 30 June 1929 "in Field Court and within a stone's throw of the wide quadrangle where the two Battalions were enlisted and received their first training" in 1914.
