There is no entry in the Palmer roll for a "Tpr W.R Osbourne"; either killed, wounded or prisoner. So it appears to have been a "Served" acknowledgement on the plaque. As his rank is shown as "Trooper", I had a look on my IY CD and there are two possible candidates:
"23550 Tpr,.W. Osbourne, 76th Coy., 22nd IY.
"35179 Tpr. W.Osbourne, 74th Coy., 8th IY".
Of course, W.R.Osbourne could have served with the Cavalry - a few prospectives there. However, they are listed as "Private".
Regards
IL.

Thanks, IL. The IWM war memorials site has this recorded, and they seem to have made the assumption that he died.
