A plaque commemorates Private Benjamin Acreman, of the 2nd Light Horse Field Ambulance who died at sea on the troopship S.S. Borda in January 1915.

Some weeks ago it was officially announced that Benjamin Andrew Acreman, a private in the 2nd Light Horse Field Ambulance, had died at sea. Desiring to show their respect, the officers and men of the various units on the troopship have forwarded  through Mr. E. A. Wiggins, their Y.M.C.A. secretary, a cheque for £15 to the Rev. W. H. W. Stevenson, in whose parish the late Private Ackerman`s parents reside. They request that their gift shall be used for the purpose of erecting a memorial tablet in St. George's Church, Windsor, or in such other place that the parents of the young soldier may approve.
