The club has just acquired a Standard medal for its collection. The medal was given to RA Raxworthy for his efforts in the 1931 Balham 100. In pristine condition, the mark reveals it is sterling silver and made in Birmingham in 1931 (Anchor, Lion, Letter G). The maker D&D is currently unidentified. The medal has a familiar design for Balham CC races of the period with a number of features we first examined here
The time is recorded in a list of Standard winners in the 1932 Handbook
CORRECTION: 8 DECEMBER 2019 Copy changed to reflect identification of the medal as a Silver Standard not for a race as previously described
Have you or any family members got any club memorabilia from the Balham years? Can you shed any further light on RA Raxworthy? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or drop me a line in the comments box. I would love to hear from you.
