Search for 1924 Gold Medal

Can you help us find one?

By Malc King

In 1924 Gloucester celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Club with a match against a side put together by the President of the Rugby Union, Capt W S Donne, containing seven internationals. An exciting game was finally won by Gloucester snatching victory 11-9 on the stroke of time. Tom Voyce was the newly elected captain of Gloucester, and scored a try. A banquet was then held at which many former players were reunited.

As a memento of the occasion, the players of both teams were presented with a gold medal by Dr Arnold Alcock, in his first year as President of the Club.

We have never seen one of these medals – do any of you have one, or know where one can be seen? We'd be most grateful for a chance to get a photograph up on our website.
