Medals

This collection of War medals and School sports medals were very recently donated to the school by Mrs A.P.Warren, widow of Richard Edmund Rufus Warren OB Uppers, 1940.

The collection of war medals, with original addressed boxes, comprises –

The Campaign Star 1939-45, The Defence Medal, The Africa Star 1939-45,

The War Service medal and the General Service Medal with Palestine 1945-48 clasp.

This individual set will be displayed in its own wooden case, which will be crafted by our Estates team.

 

The seven cased, School medals from Mrs.Warren, gave us the answer to a question posted on a past donation page because the backs of the medals had been inscribed with the event, placing and date won, as you can see from the items shown.

 

They join the school medal collection, already on display in the Exhibition Room cabinet.
