World War Bronze Plaque Reads:

ROLL OF HONOR

GORHAM, N.H.

IN MEMORY OF HER SOLDIERS AND SAILORS
WHO SERVED IN THE WOLD WAR 1914 - 1918

Followed by the names of 118 local residents who served in the Armed Forces and returned
home following the cessation of hostilities and the Treaty of Versailles.
Followed by a list of eight local heroes who died in service to their country defending freedom
and liberty.
To the right of the center granite column which features the original bronze plaques, is a gray
granite column with a similar World War 1 list of those who served and those who died while
in service. This number is 130 which is a difference of 4 between the bronze plaque and the
granite wall. This happens quite often as when the bronze plaque was produced is usually
soon after the war and inadvertently there are very often names left off and some misspelled.
