Beneath the title "Roll of Honour at top-centre is the Union Flag and a laurel wreath, bisected by a ribbon bearing the words "For King and Country". Beneath this is the dedicatory inscription, followed by the names of all the officers and constables of Leeds City Police who enlisted in WW1, along with a note of their Police rank and collar numbers. (N.B. Among those listed on the Roll of Honour as having served is P.C. 102 John Crawshaw Raynes, who was awarded the Victoria Cross while serving in the Royal Field Artillery. The Roll of Honour omitted mention of his receipt of that award, and similarly omitted annotations re some other recipients' decorations for gallantry etc. The Roll of Honour also omitted to indicate whether any of those named upon it had died, yet several are known to have done so).
