Question is, did your Grandfather live in Nottingham and did he attend Huntingdon Street Boys School?
My Father was born in 1900 and was therefore 12 years old when he received the medal.
N.S.S.A. I presume stands for Nottingham Schools Swimming Association.

Hi Fangel,

Well, he was born 1867 and live his entire life in Nottingham, and is buried there too, but I have no idea if he went to Huntingdon St school.

I kind of got the feeling that he had been an older  man (memories from what my Gramps told me on giving me the item - sadly I it was too long ago, and I wasn't then into family history) But I do know he wore it as a watch chain? on his waistcoat.  Evidently it was a thing of pride for him.

Best wishes,

Hi Hiltern,

Welcome to Rootschat!

Thank you for your reply to my query, I am finding it very interesting that these medals keep turning up, I just wish I could read my G Grandfathers one, but as it was worn every day, it is too worn to read!

Kind regards,
