Our early release centenary collection memorabilia will be made up of collectable medals and mugs. Each is designed to capture a snapshot of the past that will interest collectors and those interested in the history of the Great War.  
 
  We offer designs on individual Victoria Cross recipients as well as and uniquely VC recipients by nation and by action. Poets, Authors, Kings and leaders of state As well as the ordinary soldier who was called upon to perform extraordinary acts of courage and endurance. Along with the designs for campaigns and battles we believe we are creating a site that will appeal to all who are interested in the Great War.
 
    Gallery Solace will be donating the profits from our Great War collection to the John Parr and George Price memorial fund and Doctors without frontiers.
 Parr and Price are believed to be the first and last British Empire soldiers to fall in action on the western front. The memorial is dedicated to these two young men and to the 37.000.000 casualties of the First World War that separated their deaths.
