The plaque commemorates the over-subscription to the Peace Loan in 1919.

During World War One, to finance the war the Commonwealth had a series of war loans, and then peace loans. To recover the cost of the war and fund soldier pensions the government launched 'Peace Loan' campaigns after the war. Peace loans were similar to the war loans where people loaned money to the government and received interest.

Carrieton,September 29th.
We are pleased to report that the Carrieton district has subscribed £400 more than its quota to the Peace Loan to date, and therefore is amongst the districts who have gained the "honour tablet." The quota allotted to this district was £1,000, and, with an extension of time until the 7th October, the prospects are good that the amount will be doubled.
