As for this one, it had been securely fixed to my parent's garden wall for the past forty odd years, and I do mean SECURELY, my father certainly wouldn't have wanted any light-fingered scallywag to half-inch it now, would he! The plaque is solid bronze, weighs over a kilogram and measures 90mm x 60mm and is 27mm high at the crown.
As usual, I have absolutely no idea of the monetary value of this plaque, but as with the other items relating to my late father's service in the Royal Navy, I do not wish it to sit in a box in the attic and be forgotten. I would much prefer it go to a genuinely interested collector/historian.
