ELSWORTH - Roll of Honour - Handwritten Plaque

A handwritten Roll of Honour for those serving in World War 1 can be found inside the church hanging from the wall. Interestingly the war is referred to as the European War. The names were transcribed from the photograph and some are partially illegible. The poppy denotes those men killed during the conflict.
