Memorial Plaque for Sergeant John Walker
Large bronze circular medallion commemorating the death of Sgt. John Walker. Central image of Britannia holding a laurel wreath (for Victory) and trident (for Britain's sea power). She stands with a lion at her feet. Two dolphins swim around her reinforcing the symbolism of British sea power. Underneath the lion, is a smaller depiction of a lion (Britain) tearing apart the German eagle. The legend around the plaque reads 'He Died For Freedom And Honour', and there is a space for the medallion owner's name.
