A beaten copper shield on which tiny copper name plaques for each veteran are attached. Names are grouped according to the veteran's role in the hospital (e.g. nursing staff). The shield is decorated with the Sydney Hospital badge at the very top, a crossed Australian flag and Union Jack, and laurel leaves. It is mounted on a polished timber board. Lettering is engraved and blackened, some headings have been coloured in red.The memorial can be located in the former main entrance foyer.



1914 -1919 Roll of Honor. Sydney Hospital Staff on Active Service. 'Quid verbis opus est? Spectantur agendo' (in red, meaning 'What is the use of words? Let us be judged by our deeds.') [At the very bottom] Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
