8" x 10" Black and White photo with "Colonial corners" (cropped corners) of the iconic "Less We Forget" photo of a Colonial Soldier (looks to be a Marine, but some say its a Pilot) on his knees watching the Capital of Aerilon in flames.

This picture can seen hanging near the hatch to in the Pilot's Ready Room and in President Roslin's Office on Colonial One.

Tradition on the Galactica has each Pilot pat the picture on their way to their ships when they head into battle, so they remember what they are fighting for. Picture Frame Not Included. From Battlestar Wiki:

"There was a scene cut from "33" where we saw Laura being given her copy of the photo along with a card that said it was taken on the roof of the capitol building on Aerilon during the attack.

The photo was inspired by the famous shot of the fire-fighters raising the flag at Ground Zero that became iconic. I thought the Colonies would have their own version of this -- a snapshot taken in the moment that becomes a symbol of the day they can never forget and of all they had lost. The photo itself is of a soldier falling to his knees (possibly shot or simply overcome by emotion) as he stands on the rooftop over looking the devastation of his city, while the Colonial flag waves at the edge of frame. The inscription below the photo on Laura's plaque reads, "Lest We Forget" in itself a reference to the inscription on the watch presented to John Wayne's character in "She Wore a Yellow Ribbon". - Ron Moore

This photo, referred to as the "unknown soldier" photo by the production, features production manager and Battlestar director Wayne Rose kneeling on the helicopter pad at the Vancouver Film Studios, where the series was filmed at from Season 1 and onward.
