Roll of honour

In the Second World War approximately one quarter of ICAEW members served and many decorations were gained, including two Victoria Crosses. The list on this page has been extracted from the handwritten roll of honour displayed in the Members' Room at Chartered Accountants Hall in London.

The following entries for members have been transcribed by a volunteer using the reproduction of the original handwritten Roll of Honour held by the Library which includes some corrections made in pencil.
