Memorial Hall plaque

The inscription which  heads the War Memorial Plaque found in the Memorial Hall is taken from the Welsh song, I Blas Gogerddan and has been translated as meaning "It is better to die young and brave than live as a coward."  It is unusal in as much that it records the names of all those who left Llandegla to go to War not just those who did not return.
