World War I Ceramic Memorial Plaque

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I am hoping to get some information on this World War I Ceramic Memorial Plaque.  I am familiar with the Death Penny, but have never seen one of these plaques before.  I see from the back stamps that it was made by the Royal Household Company.  That company calls this "The Century Memorial Tablet".

 

It is named to Lance Corporal Albert Drury, 1/7 West Yorks.  I confirmed that this was Killed in Action on 03 September 1916.

 

I have included three photos.

 

I am also interested in its value.

 

Thank you for your help.

 

Semper Fi,

Bruce Linz

Very nice item. A private purchase indeed.

 

In the Netherlands similar items were given by municipalities to veterans of their city/village.

Small world. I picked this item up at the tiny Indianapolis Military Show today.
