The inscription reads:
Fame, as it reaches the furthest limits of the sunlit earth,There is a very faint echo of Churchill's August 20th 1940 speech in Parliament paying tribute to the pilots of the Royal Air Force in the Battle of Britain:

In battle with the Medes, and how they garlanded Athens,
The few who undertook the war of many.
Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.
