Description

The memorial is a beautifully restored roll of honor for the First World War. It consists of a decorative copper plaque, attached to a timber backing board. The names of more than 100 ex-pupils from Alstonville Public School who served in the war are inscribed on individual brass plaques, which are attached across eight rows in the centre of the board.

It is ornately decorated, featuring an egg and dart motif at the top; the crossed flags of Australia and Britain; a scroll with the dedication plaque attached in the centre; a fleur de-lys at the bottom, and a decorative flame column on each side of the board.
