One of two wooden boards placed in the entrance of the church. These boards are naively carved on the boards and unlike the plaque now in the church, the names of the young men are not in alphabetical order - could they have been placed on the boards as they were KIA or died as a result of conflict. Infact some of the carvings look to be by a differant craftsman as the first letter of each word is more arty and larger letters, also, the lines are not as straight
