Strathfield Station Services Staff First World War Memorial

Strathfield Station Services Staff First World War Memorial
Description

This framed memorial board is titled "Strathfield Station Services Staff" across its top. It displays 13 photographs of servicemen in uniform with their names underneath, as well as a British War Medal and a Victory Medal awarded to "Gnr. L Ryan" (service number 2242, no photograph displayed).

This board forms part of the State-owned S170 protected collection known as the RailCorp Moveable Heritage Collection and is currently stored at the Igloo, Chullora Railyards. It may have been made by NSW Government Railways staff after the First World War and then hung somewhere at Strathfield Station, although no records supporting this have been found.
