Help identify amateur teams, medals & hallmarks
« on: Saturday 12 August 17 17:33 BST (UK) »
This is a bit of a longshot I realise, but Iíd like to try and identify the teams from these medals, and maybe from there I could (possibly) find out my relativeís association with them.

The person who left the medals said they were sports medals (itís thought she said swimming but it was decades ago) belonging to Leonard Scott who was born in 1890 (so too old to have been a player, maybe on the staff, I don't think he was a teacher though).

The first one is I assume the East Riding County Football Association cup competition,  Junior mid week cup winners 1923-24. Hallmark: ? silver, Birmingham, 1922-23. I assume that team would have had a name, but I canít find any reference to it. The only other place I can think of to search is the newspaper archive. I donít have paid access but just by the headlines the competition does get a few mentions but I canít find the winners.


The second is H&D.S.S.L 1922-1923. I had no idea what that meant but the closest match I could find for that acronym is  the Hull and District Sunday School Association Football League. But that could be wrong.
Hallmark WHH, silver, Birmingham, 1923-24.

I donít know if the symbols in the middle of the medals have any significance?

The third medal is just a generic Hull coat of arms so it would seem impossible to identify anything from that. The only clue would be the hallmark: cashmere & co, silver, Birmingham, O. Could anyone identify the year from that? Itís probably either 1913 or 1939 but how you tell the difference I donít know.

Thanks for any help, or of any further ideas of where to search. I feel the winners at least must be in some archive somewhere.

First one could be East Riding something Football Association - an eagle like that is on the badge of the Riding - and 3 crowns one above the other is the symbol of Hull, so that tallies

sorry searched before reading whole post! S for swimming?

Thanks, didn't know that. The other one is a... shield?
