Description

A cast oval bronze plaque decorated with a laurel wreath around the outside of the plaque and a cross at the top. Names are listed down the centre, inside the wreath.  The memorial is located near platform 23 as part of the Railway Remembrance Wall.

Additional information by Sydney Trains:

An oval bronze plaque with the title '1939-1945', with nine Railways employees names who gave their lives in the Second World War listed.

It is decorated with a laurel wreath around the outside and a cross above. At the bottom are the words 'Splendid you passed the great surrender made, into the light That nevermore shall fade' which are from a hymn by John Arkwirght, 1919.

Following investigations it was found it displays the names of Rozelle Railways and Tramways Stores Branch employees. On Rozelle's closure, it was relocated to Transport House, and on its closure in 2000, was relocated and fixed to the western Railway Remembrance Wall at Central Station.
