Do I enter military plaque as separate gravestone or combine it with other gravestone

If there is a gravestone and a military plaque, do I combine the two stones, or transcribe the plaque separately?

Link the two images and transcribe into one record. If you find a situation where the miltary stone has already been transcribed and you need to merge it with another image, use the military stone with its record as the primary image and merge the other one to it. For some "bad code" reason, the military transcription will not always copy over during merge the other way.

The cautionary note here  is always try to use the record with the most information as the primary "merge to" record.
