This fairly basically made ring is engraved with the image of a WW1 tank. It is made of white metal and there are no other markings on it. According to my father (who died in 2007) it was "... taken from the body of a dead German officer in no man's land 1917". I do not know by whom. Although his father - Albert Gorge Warren served in WW1, he lost a leg during the Battle of the Somme in 1916 so it could not have been him. Other relatives also served, though.
