Hello Mike,
You might want two, I think I would, they are certainly very pleasing and decorative, I don't think I've ever seen a single example for sale on my travels, despite always trying to make time to visit as many antique centres or individual shops as possible.
I think I'd be happy to buy one at some point in the future, but, we shall see.
Regards Frank

I have at long last got round to taking a reasonable photograph of the example I have in my collection.

As noted earlier in this thread (six years ago!), this one was presented to 7367, Lance-Corporal Fred HEAYSMAN, The Queen's (Royal West Surrey) Regt. The ceremony took place in the Drill Hall, Reigate, on 22 May 1901, when 19 plaques were presented by Mr T.H. Roberts (Chairman of the Reception Committee and Horley Parish Council).

Since last writing on the subject, I have acquired the medals to another recipient - Captain J.F. WATERLOW, City Imperial Volunteers.
Unfortunately the plaque has become separated from this group. As had Waterlow's C.I.V. sword, but the latter has now been reunited with the medals.
