WW1 Death Plaque

Array
£125.00
Description

 A nice 100% original untouched WW1 Death Plaque named.

16th Battallion, King's Royal Rifle Corps. Small research pack provided. 

Nicholas Higton They are made of Bronze same as the VC. "1,355,000 plaques were issued, which used a total of 450 tons of bronze" They were initially made at the Memorial Plaque Factory, 54/56 Church Road, Acton, W3, London from 1919. Early Acton-made plaques did not have a number stamped on them but later ones have a number stamped behind the lion's back leg. In December 1920 manufacture was shifted to the Royal Arsenal, Woolwich. Plaques manufactured here can be identified by a circle containing the initials "WA" on the back  (the "A" being formed by a bar between the two upward strokes of the "W") and by a number stamped between the tail and leg (in place of the number stamped behind the lion's back leg).

Postage included for UK clients.
