Remembered Today:

Death plaque/memorial. Advice sought


Recommended Posts

Hi, this is my first post so excuse if I have breached any house rules. I couldn't find the correct forum to introduce myself.

I'll jump straight in with a question and hope one of the replies will point me in the right direction to formally introduce myself.

I have recently been through my late fathers possessions ( took me a while seeing as he passed in 1990) and came across a war office specimen death plaque dated 1920.

Anybody have any information on these. I have some other plaques relating to family members who died in the Great War and know a little about the plaques issued to service personnel who paid the ultimate price.

I know only what Google was able to supply on these specimens I.e. They were for each relevant government department to approve but would be interested in any other information.

I'm on an iPad and can't seem to reduce the size of the photo to upload it. Technophobe I'm afraid

We have a number of threads on specimen plaques on the BMF. The last I saw sold was in 2011 for 375£, that was on the forum and not ebay.
