EDITORS COMMENTS
This poignant and thought-provoking image depicts a Death Plaque in the name of David Harrison, a soldier who lost his life during the First World War (1914-1918), also known as the Great War or WWI. The Death Plaque, a military artifact, was created to honor the memory of fallen soldiers and was often displayed in their homes or at their graves. David Harrison, a young man from an unknown background, is represented by this simple yet profound memorial. The plaque bears his name, rank, and the regiment to which he belonged - a poignant reminder of the human cost of the war. The faded, worn appearance of the plaque adds to its historical significance and underscores the passage of time since the end of the conflict. E. Carter Preston, the photographer, captured this image with a sensitive and respectful eye, allowing the viewer to contemplate the sacrifices made by David Harrison and countless others during the First World War. The trench setting in the background further emphasizes the harsh realities of the war and the danger that soldiers faced daily. The image also includes a military medal, which may have been awarded to David Harrison posthumously as a mark of recognition for his service and sacrifice. The combination of the Death Plaque, the medal, and the trench setting creates a powerful and moving tribute to the human stories behind the statistics of the First World War. This photograph is an essential addition to any collection focusing on military history, World War I, or the art of remembrance. It offers a glimpse into the past, inviting us to reflect on the sacrifices made by individuals like David Harrison and the impact of war on families and communities.
