Memorial Scroll relating to the death in the First World War of Nursing Sister Florence Narrelle Jessie Hobbes, Queen Alexandra's Imperial Military Nursing Service Reserve. In 1922 a Memorial Scroll was presented to the next of kin of those soldiers, sailors, and nurses who died while serving in the Australian Imperial Force or Royal Australian Navy during the First World War. Later they were presented with a Next of Kin Memorial Plaque. The Memorial Scroll bears the Royal Coat of Arms and a message paying tribute to the soldiers who gave up "their own lives that others might live in freedom".
