This paper is concerned with the linear delay partial difference equation Am,n=i=1upiAmki,nli+j=1vqjAm+τj,n+σj, where pi and qj are r×r matrices, Am,n=(am,n1,am,n2,,am,nr)T,ki,li,τj and σj are nonnegative integers, u and v are positive integers. Sufficient and necessary conditions for all solutions of this equation to be oscillatory componentwise are obtained.
