Julian Farrance presents a First World War (1914-18) memorial plaque and scroll.
Scroll of Honour (video)
Now, in 'A small piece of history', Julian Farrance of the National Army Museum presents a favourite object from the Collection.
This is quite a commonplace thing. It's not very rare, but it is very important. Because what this is is a commemorative plaque and a scroll of honour - things that your family would receive if you were a soldier from the First World War who lost their life.
And what the scroll says is:
"He whom this scroll commemorates was numbered among those who, at the call of King and Country, left all that was dear to them, endured hardness, faced danger, and finally passed out of the sight of men by the path of duty and self-sacrifice, giving up their own lives that others might live in freedom. Let those who come after see to it that his name be not forgotten." And his name was Major Aubrey John Carter.
Now we're the people who come after and it's our job to make sure these names are never forgotten. And if there's one piece in our Collection that encapsulates what the National Army Museum is all about, it's this.
