Medal presented by Ernest Jardine MP + additional photo (new)
« on: Monday 04 August 08 23:41 BST (UK) »
Hi,


I wonder if anyone can shed any light on a silver medal that I have, it is about an 1" in diameter, and reads "presented by Ernest Jardine MP"  There is a crest in the centre of the round medallion, with the writing round the edge.

There is no date, and sadly the inscription on the reverse side has worn away.
It belonged to my G Grandfather who died in 1947.

What was their connection? Why such a nice medal?

Many thanks in anticipation!

Hi there

There is reference to Ernest and his family on the following website. A brilliant website regarding Lymbery, Luntley & Jardine families.

Thank for the information Jonny, and Teresa, and yes Jonny, I will try to send you a pic of the medal, but might take a while.... I haven't worked out how to put a picture onto this site yet!

Click on "Reply", then click on "Attach a photograph or image..." below this text box, then click on "Browse" to find the picture on your computer, then click on "Post". You could send the pic directly to my email (*). Ernest Jardine's son John founded a Scouting organisation. The medal may be Scouting related.

Are there any personal records (staff, paysheets etc) of John Jardine Lace Machine Builders, Nottingham from the late 1800's to say 1920's in existence please. Many of my male rellies worked there for most of their lives. (Foster and Simpson)
Thanks Janet
