Hello,

Can anyone advise me as to what this plaque may be from? It has an association with one of the most daring events in WW1. On the rear is punch stamped " Souvenir  H M S Vindictive Zeebrugge April 22 & 25 Ostend May 10 1918" The plaque measures 140 by 75 mm.

This may be obvious but no one has said it: Friedrich Krupp AG, Essen Aufsichtsrat (supervisory board). I think ...

Not so obvious it seems. Essen a/R = Essen an (der) Ruhr.

and AG is short for Aktien Gesellschaft (joint-stock company).

Oh dear. Apologies for the misleading info. I'll stick to what I know in future ..... probably.
