In another thread Henk Loots displayed a D.C.M. group to Corporal W. Sopp, 65th Company, 17th Imperial Yeomanry that includes a Melton Mowbray tribute medal.

Hibbard (p. 51) illustrates a similar tribute medal (but with suspender and ribbon) to Trooper Patrick Nolan, 65th Company Imperial and notes that 'no other details are available' concerning the medal.

The 'Grantham Journal' of 9th November 1901 gives further details.

Hello Justin,
The very mention of Melton Mowbray, brings about, in my own mind, only one thing, a pie! :woohoo:

Guess What??

The name Melton Mowbray reminds me of not only pork pie's with an egg in the center but also of my school days. Believe it or not, i spent a few years at school there in the early to mid 1960's until moving firstly to Madrid then Cape Town. I lived in the village of Hoton a few mile aways.

Remember those days with great fondness.

Pork pie with egg in the centre, so that would actually be a pork and egg pie! :woohoo:
Adrian, what are your thoughts on Scotch Eggs?
