It took me two attempts to get these photographs. The first time the girl behind the counter was a bit confused, had no idea what I meant by "war memorial plaque" and was totally unaware that they had one, despite the fact she walked past it to come out and talk to me. She then informed me she'd have to check with her manager due to "security issues". I never heard back from her.

The second time I went I met a rather nice member of staff who was more than happy to let me take a couple of pictures.



Hopefully these pictures managed to capture all of the names on the plaque:
