I know there will be those who are, right about now, saying "What?" Allow me to try to explain the why for this request. In a "Haul" from an estate sale/auction yesterday, I came into possession of a mantle clock dated to 1917 that I'm trying to research the historical significance of if I can. Going by what is written on a plaque attached to the front of this clock, it was awarded to a person in 1917 in observance of some kind of contribution they made. I'm trying to see if I can find out who this person was, what they did, and any significance that might be connected to it. I'm trying Google and following links from that. But I seem to not be making any meaningful progress, so I'm asking for the assistance anyone might be willing to lend. Especially from anyone who is into and/or knowledgable on WW1 British history. This is a picture of the plaque on the clock.
