We were contacted via Facebook by Andrew Shaw Regarding some medals dating back to 1914. A copy of Andrew's post is below along with the pictures he kindly shared.
Hi guys. Not an angler myself but I thought I would share some photographs of my late Grandfather’s & late Uncle’s fishing medals. I never knew either of them but these medals are in my possession & date back to 1914 when my Grandfather, George Shaw, was a member of the club. I see that the club was first founded in 1911, maybe he was a founding member?? He was chairman of the L&DAA in 1933 & I have his gold button hole badge. He died in 1936. I did try to enquire some years ago to see if there were any records but I was told that the Association has become divided over the years. Maybe someone might know more of the history which I would be interested to hear.
