Science Museum war memorial


{The design shows two layers, each representing a war, with "19" serving as a link between the two sets of dates "14-18" and "39-45". A single small cross is cut through both layers at the top. 2 names are given on the WW1 layer and 8 names on the WW2 layer.  See Subjects Commemorated for the names. 

At the bottom of the plaque:}
In memory of the staff of this Science Museum who gave their lives in the two World Wars. 

This plaque is made of a single piece of cast iron.
