The plaque commemorates those who served in the 7th Australian Infantry Battalion during World War One. The plaque location is indicated by a red poppy in the second image. 

The 7th Battalion was an Infantry battalion of the Australian Army. Raised in 1914 as part of the Australian Imperial Force during the First World War, the battalion was completely recruited from the state of Victoria and formed the @nd Brigade, 1st Division. The battalion served during the Gallipoli campaign where it had the distinction of having four of its members awarded the Victoria Cross. In 1916, it was transferred to Europe, fighting in the trenches along the Western Front for the next two and a half years.
