One thought on “Thornaby Remembrance Parade and Service, Sunday 12 November 2017

  1. My Grandfathers name, H. DALRYMPLE, is front and center on the Thornaby Cenotaph. Whenever I am back in the U.K. I try to pay a visit. He is buried in Thornaby Cemetery. I have his 1st. World War Medals. The 1914 STAR, THE BRITISH WAR MEDAL and THE BRITISH VICTORY MEDAL (Pip Squeak and Wilfred). I also have his NEXT OF KIN MEMORIAL PLAQUE (The Dead Mans Penny). I am hoping somebody (Frank Mee) can help me out and give me an explanation as to how he got The Dead Mans Penny when the date of his death is January 12th. 1920. I understood you had to die in the War to get this.
