The board is made of Queensland silky oak and is 4ft 6 inches and 2ft 6inches wide. The pediment shows handpainted representations of the flags of Britain and Australia. On top in gold letters is the word "Gogango" underneath are the words "honour board" extending right across the board. At the left side are the words "War declared 1914 " and on the right "Peace proclaimed 19-" . The single panels has the names of the soldiers in two columns with space left for more names.
