This bronze plaque is dedicated to the memory of Corporal James Albert Henderson. James Henderson was born in October 1874 and resided in the village of Billings Bridge where he was employed as a carpenter. He was a member of the Princess Louise Dragoon Guards for numerous years before he enlisted in the 8th Battalion. He was killed in September 1916 and is buried in Courcelette British Cemetery.

This plaque was originally located at the Loyal Orange #222 Billings Bridge; at the time, the village of Billings Bridge was a small community near the present day Billings Bridge in Ottawa. With the closure of the Lodge, the plaque eventually came into the hands of Gloucester Township Historical Society.
