Bronco78th Posted May 9, 2018 Report Share Posted May 9, 2018 Hi again everyone. Someone has asked me about doing an engraving on a brass plaque but the instructions I slightly different to the basic stuff I normally do. Basically a charity run by the local museum have received special dispensation to send a dive team to the wreck of a WW1 hospital ship which was torpedoed by a Uboat and sunk. There were several people from the town that went down with the ship and this is something the town is planning to do to mark the WW1 Centenary. They want to put a brass plaque on the deck of the ship. The plaque will be about A5 size and round/oval to avoid sharp edges. Not be to heavy as it needs to be carried by one of the divers, but also needs the relevant protections again the harsh elements of the sea. The plaque will have the charity Logo and about 15 words of text. What equipment would be needed to carry out this job and what other considerations are there? Ive already turned it down because I don't feel comfortable or knowledgeable enough to do the job it deserves but I said id seek advice for them.....would simply going to a memorial type engravers be the answer for them? Though they are trying to keep it local (Oxfordshire) There might be a job if any of you want to take it on, it would be for less than the going rate of course but if your feeling charitable!
