At the time of the unveiling there were just over 300 names on the board.

Fidelis in omnibus
In hac tabula inscripta sunt nomina eorum qui,
condiscipuli, in bello maxima post nominum memoriam
gesto alii animam, sanguinem alii, nauatam operam omnes
ultro tribuerunt ut liberi sumus et nos et patria nostram
