Sir Joseph Larmor (Fellow)'s bequest (d.1942) allowed for an award of a piece of plate engraved with the year and 'Sir Joseph Larmor's plate', plus a financial reward. Until 1954 war-time conditions meant that no pieces of plate had been awarded, but pieces were commisioned, and some [made by Clements in 1952] bore retrospective award dates, 1944 and 1945.
