WW1 Ornate Oak Memorial Plaque With Glazed Original Portrait Photo Post Card Of An Unknown British Officer In Uniform. Sn 15703:21 - 15703:21

This is an original WW1 Oak Memorial plaque of an unknown British Officer who fell in the Great War. The Oak plaque has an ornate deep carved centre panel with Angel bearing laurel wreaths atop columned crypt, Soldiers in mourning standing guard with upturned rifles, banners and arms and panel with text ‘The Path Of Duty Was The Way Of Glory’. In the background WW1 fighter aircraft in flight are depicted. Between the columns is a glazed window which contains an original WW1 era French postcard photo of an unknown British Officer in Uniform (it was common practice for Soldiers serving overseas to have photos taken of themselves to send to family and friends). The rear of the plaque has a hinged panel secured by 2 small brass swivel bars which allows access to the postcard for cleaning / inspection. The postcard has printed French & English text to the rear. There is no postage stamp or handwriting on the postcard and there is nothing to identify the Officer in the photo either on the card or plaque. The plaque is clean and has just a few light bumps and bruises consistent with age and storage. The plaque measures 22 ½” x 17 ½” x 1 ½”. The top edge of the frame has 2 hanging rings fitted with cord for wall hanging. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 15703:21
