Stationers' War Memorial

Inscription

To the glory of God & in honoured memory of the liverymen of the Worshipful Company of Stationers who gave their lives for God, King and Country during the Great War 1914 - 1918,
{an alphabetical list of 7 names, see Subjects Commemorated}
Their Name liveth for evermore.

A beautiful, hand-crafted plaque - not just the frame, the gold lettering has some lovely touches - see the "LO" of "glory" and the way the lines are all fully justified. Pity it's looking a bit weather-worn.
