In memory of/ the glorious dead/ who laid down their lives/ in the Great Wars/ 1914-1918/ 1939-1945/ 'Greater love hath no man this'

The names are on two sides and are supposedly amalgamated for both wars, according to the IWM website. Total names for WW1 are supposedly 80 and 0 for WW2. I believe the bottom two on each side, which are out of alphabetical order, are WW2, totaling 4, leaving the remaining 76 as WW1.
