Bronze next of kin plaque. The plaque shows Britannia holding a laurel wreath, the British lion, dolphins, a spray of oak leaves and the words 'HE DIED FOR FREEDOM AND HONOUR' around the edge. Beneath the main figures, the British lion defeats the German eagle. The name of the dead soldier, 'JACK DARNEDT', is inscribed in raised letters within a raised rectangle. The initials 'ECP', for the designer Edward Carter Preston, appear above the lion's right forepaw.
