Description

The Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) is an intergovernmental organisation of six independent member states whose principal function is to mark, record and maintain the graves and places of commemoration of Commonwealth of Nations military service members who died in the two World Wars. The commission is also responsible for commemorating Commonwealth civilians who died as a result of enemy action during the Second World War. The commission was founded by Sir Fabian Ware and constituted through Royal Charter in 1917 as the Imperial War Graves Commission. The change to the present name took place in 1960. The plaque measures 6 ½ x 6 ½ “ *one minor are damaged-see images* mounted onto a hardwood shield shaped hangable plinth. The plaque is dated 1914-1918 ‘PTE Francis Shaw 1/3 MAN R REGT- WHO DIED FOR HIS KING AND COUNTRY IN THE GREAT WAR. In the inner circle it reads ‘WILMSLOW DISTRICT IN GRATEFUL MEMORY, with a shield with the Coat of Arms of Wilmslow emblem within. The literature states Private Shaws death date as 18th December 1914 and his grave number within the cemetery. A very poignant set which is worthy of further investigation. The price includes UK delivery. 13788.
