The honour board, of polished wood, has a tiled mosaic in the centre, portraying an armored knight. The top of the board has the legend in wooden lettering. There are two carved round columns, one on either side, flanking the knight's image and the names of the honoured soldiers. Carved wooden laurel wreath on the side of the board, and at its top. There are two rows of names, painted on the wood in gold paint, one on either side of the central image. The mosaic is of a knight in full armour, with cloak, sword and chain mail. He has a halo, and the word "Faith" is formed in mosaic tiles above his head. There is a green and yellow tile border, an interior border of gold tiles, a blue mosaic background, and the figure is painted on a smooth cement background. The central panel is attached separately, with four bolts.
Commissioned by the Kildonan Presbyterian Homes for Children. The honour board commemorates the 67 former 'Kildonan Boys' who served in the AIF in the Great War (World War I). Eight of the men listed were killed in action.
The honour board was donated to the Museum in 1990 after the large institutional home had been replaced by cottages, and there was no longer any place to display it.
