The Order of Service - Dedication of the Memorial on August 22nd, 1920

We are very grateful to the descendant family who have kept this Order of Service sheet for the 94 years since the service.

It is one of their treasured possessions although it has suffered the ravages of time.

He name was added to the memorial later.
