This WWI Memorial Plaque is made from lead-free pewter.

The Memorial Plaque was issued to the next-of-kin of all British and Empire service personnel who were killed during World War I.

The original plaque had a 120mm diameter and was cast in bronze. This copy has a diameter of 45mm. The front shows Britannia bestowing a laurel crown on a rectangular tablet bearing the full name of the dead in raised lettering. In front stands the British Lion, with dolphins in the upper field, an oak branch lower right, and a lion cub clutching a fallen eagle at the base. The inscription round the circumference reads 'HE (OR SHE) DIED FOR FREEDOM AND HONOUR'
