I recieved mine as a gift from my mum. She purchased one for me and each of my siblings. Our great grandad was killed during the Battle of the Somme for years we had his death plaque displayed in our house however I didn’t realise it was a little unusual to have one until my son took it into school to show his history teacher, he was apparently very surprised as he had never seen or held one before. My cousin from the states was equally fascinated by all the items we have from my great grandads time in service especially his service diary.
