Decorations are of the Scottish Thistle and the English Rose, also the allied flags.The city crest is at the top of the Roll of Honour. At the foot of the Roll of Honour is a shield bearing a representation of the lion rampant. It was originally in the Central Police Station on West Walls until that was closed in 1941, then at the Central Police Station on Rickergate, then moved to the former Police Museum at the County Police Headquarters at Carleton Hall, Penrith. Unveiled 9 April 1920 by Alderman F P Dixon, Chairman of the Watch Committee. The cited book gives the unveiling date of 4 March 1920.
