The object of the day: The WWI identity tag
All World War I service personnel were issued with a set of fibre identity discs, a green octagonal shaped disc, and a red round disc. Both were worn around the neck on a 38" length of cotton cord, although this was often replaced by the wearer with a leather bootlace.
This identity tag or 'dog tag' was owned by Stanley George Plummer.
