Britannia - The Story of Britannia on Coins

Memorial Plaques
In the first World War 1914 to 1918, relatives of killed service personnel were given a "death plaque" or memorial medal showing the name of the dead person. These plaques or medals were individually cast in bronze. Most were issued to men, and their legend (inscription) reads HE DIED FOR FREEDOM AND HONOUR. We are looking to buy one issued to a female to add to our photograph collection.

Wanted
We want to buy any Memorial Plaques featuring Britannia, particularly in better grades, so that we can display better photographs on this page. We particularly would like one named to a woman.
