After investigation into this untitled Honour Roll, it was found the employees all belonged to the Traffic Branch.

A large polished wooden Honour Roll board, with 234 Traffic Branch railways employees names who served in the First World War and the Second World War painted in white in seven columns, behind seven glass panes. It was decorated with a crown and crossed Union Jack and Australian flags, and the words 'Lest we forget' above.
