Description

An oak plaque naming Members of the Rowing Club who served in the Great War.

From the 1920 Report of the unveiling and dedication ceremony, 10 members who died are also named, and according to the report, their names were enclosed in the laurel wreath; it would seem that the plaque showing F T Mew has been overlaid on these names.
