Sydney Hospital Second World War Roll of Honor

Description

Sydney Hospital houses several large honour boards for the Second World War. Each board consists of three or four white marble plaques, set within an elaborately-carved, dark timber frame. The veterans' names are engraved into the marble and blackened. They are grouped according to the veterans' role in the hospital (e.g. nursing staff). A small Sydney Hospital badge is included at the top of one of the boards.
