Photograph of the back of the Victory Medal awarded to Pvt Victor Kaplan, who died at the age of 23 during World War I combat at Delville Wood in 1916. From September 1919 onwards, the United Kingdom granted this campaign medal to those who had served during World War I (5 August 1914 to 11 November 1918) and had already received either the 1914 Star, 1914-15 Star, or British War Medal. The inscription on the medal reads, "The Great War for Civilisation - De Grote Oorlog voor de Beschaving 1914-1919".
