A plaque commemorates the service of H.M.A.S. Shropshire from 1942 to 1954.

Completed in 1929, Shropshire served with the Royal Navy until 1942, when she was transferred to the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) following the loss of sister ship HMAS Canberra. Commissioned as HMAS Shropshire, the ship remained in RAN service until 1949, and was sold for scrap in 1954.
