John Thomas Allaby
Noted here because of the interesting medal, a silver fob
medallion dated 1895, which bears his name. The purpose of
this medallion and the reason for its award are not known. The
medallion is in silver so it must have been something significant.
The shield is in a contrasting metal. Manufactured by John Gilbert
(& Co.) Birmingham
Assay Office list.
Shows signs of wear so must have been worn extensively, showing
how much pride there was in having been awarded it.
