Quote from leaflet about church history -
'A fine delft plaque in the vestibule above the main door of the church is a "thank you" from the Netherlands for hospitality to its service personnel during the Second World War.'
Thanks to Mrs Aase Goldsmith for information and photographs.

Have seen quite a lot of Polish Gratitude Plaques etc. Nice to see one from the Dutch.

That's an unusual plaque. Is it made from ceramic tiles?

Plaque is "delft". Googled this
Delftware, or Delft pottery, denotes blue and white pottery made in and around Delft in the Netherlands and the tin-glazed pottery made in the Netherlands from the sixteenth to the eighteenth centuries.

Delftware in the latter sense is a type of pottery in which a white glaze is applied, usually decorated with metal oxides. Delftware includes pottery objects of all descriptions such as plates, ornaments and tiles.
