D. Sim & Sons honour board to be displayed at Morpeth Museum, Maitland RSL Sub Branch

From the Maitland Mercury report:
A piece of history linking some of the region’s young men to World War I has been uncovered after almost half a century and will now be preserved indefinitely.
An honour board of the employees of D. Sim & Sons was discovered in descendant Ian Sim’s shed in Lorn during a clean out.
