This photograph of the Memorial Death Plaque for George William Oliver was submitted by Alec Oliver of Mexborough, South Yorkshire. Mr Oliver writes "My father Wilfred Oliver survived the war after serving as a Lewis gunner with the 2nd Royal Berkshire Reg in France and Belgium. He wore a black button on his uniform signifying the loss of his elder brother. My uncle George William Oliver of the York and Lanks Reg was killed in action on the 1st July 1916, in the Battle of the Somme, he is remembered on the Thiepval Memorial. This death penny was given to the family to commemorate his death."
This photograph shows a group of children from Headington, Oxford, dressed as doctors and nurses in 1915. The photograph was brought into Oxford Central Library by Tony Godfrey on one of the Great War Archive submission days. Mr Godfrey says "the sergeant in the middle is my father, Dan Godfrey. In the front row, far right, is his next door neighbor 'Son' Ryman, and the two nurses are probably his two sisters Win and Maggie. Dad told me that if anyone misbehaved he would put them in prison!"
