ERNEST EDWARD SMITH

JOSEPH McKIBBEN

KENNEDY WILKINSON


WILLIAM BOYLE
The Commemorative Penny or Roudel below is commonly known to be fake, I'm told it was possibly made as an extra for an extended family as the original Death Pennies were only issued one per family, I personally think it is still a great work of art and worthy of a place on my site and that Col. John Robert Beech is still worth mentioning over and over again, as are all the Fallen of WW1 and WW2 - Mary
