About the memorial: Copper or Bronze Plaque. This was at the original YMCA building in the Market Place, next to the Clock Tower, and does not seem to have moved to the former Parochial Rooms in Dark Lane. It had long been believed lost. It was then found in a garage in 2013, which shortly thereafter was subject to an arson attack. The fire severely damaged the plaque, which was left in a fragile condition although it may have been restored since. It is now at Northumberland Archives for preservation, acquisition number NRO 10649/1. The plaque has a female figure blowing a horn which has a banner hanging from it with the words Roll of Honour.
