[Cover] Roll of Honour of men of the Moccasin Works who joined His Majesty's Forces in the Great War 1914 -19 This superb emblematical design is the work of Alfred John Watson F.R.I.B.A. of Bristol [Inside] In designing the Moccasin Roll of Honour it was felt that the scheme should be as intimately associated with the occasion and purpose of the record as possible. To this end the ambition and defeat of Germany was symbolized in the following manner: In the centre of the lower border and forming a base for the central panel is a golden sphere typifing the World-s around this is coiled a huge Dragon with wings outspread on either side, emblematical of Germany and by its position signifiying her ambition to dominate the globe. The wings of the Dragon are wrapped round and entangled in the signifiying her ambition to dominate the the globe.
