    Default Ceramic memorial plaque Pte. Wm. Williams SWB

    Picked up today and not something I have seen before, local to me but impossible to find out more about him as the number of William William's in the South Wales Borderers who were KIA would be too many to narrow it down I think.

    It is a beautiful but sad remindner of a man who paid the ultimate price for his service and he must have been missed for his family to have paid for this as I can't think it would have been cheap back then.

    Terrific looking piece Jerry, well done on picking it up mate. It's sad that these sort of pieces don't remain with the servicemens families but it is great that someone like yourself treats the memory of the serviemen with the respect they deserve. I'm glad you finished up with it mate.
