Moved by Conflict: Object 10: Memorial Plaque

The British government decided to commemorate the men and women who died in the First World War with a bronze plaque, to be given to the next of kin. Over one million were produced. Each plaque was individually named, and sent out with a covering letter from King George V and a memorial scroll. Lance Corporal Thomas Maggs of the 1st Battalion the Worcestershire Regiment was 26 when he was killed on 14 October 1918. His parents created a personal shrine in his memory at their home in Mina Road, Bristol. (ref O.3370)
