The Memorial Plaque was issued after the First World War to the next-of-kin of all British Empire service personnel who were killed as a result of the war. The smaller original version became known as the “Dead Man’s Penny”. These fallen soldiers never made it home for a proper burial and the plaques served to commemorate the soldier as a tangible memorial for their family.
With space to engrave your lost loved ones name, this is a perfect memorabilia for those who we lost in the war.
