Description

This certificate was presented to Horace Percy Taylor of 197 Homerton High Street. It was presented by the Overseas Club to commemorate the sending of gifts to the forces.

During the First World War, Britain was one of the greatest powers on Earth. At the same time, there were shortages in providing vital supplies to soldiers so the men, women and children at home were asked to contribute towards their provisions.

A map shows the countries then under the British Empire, as welk as their allies and enemies during the war.
