The Roll of Honour for the Cordite Factory is now stored at Melbourne's Living Museum of the West.  Many of themen listed on the board lived in Ascot Vale, across the river from the Factory.

The board has some incredibly detailed wood carving.

State Library of Victoria

This board is located in the enquiry area of the La Trobe Library of the State Library of Victoria.

Not strictly relevant to my own line of enquiry, but I was there, the board was there, the camera was in my bag- so here it is.
