Description

Anson Golf Club - The club was founded in 1893 at Dickenson Road, Rusholme, Manchester, Lancs, some seven minutes walking distance from Longsight Station. Illustrated is one of a group of silver awards, all of which are engraved, and relate to competitions held during WWI, perhaps awarded to personnel of the Services who would have enjoyed courtesy of the course during that time. All are 25mm and have a raised rim enclosing the simple details: War Memento Anson G.C. 1915 or 1916. They are all hallmarked Birmingham 1915 by G.L.. Approx 22mm in diameter. The Club survived WWI but I do not know when play ceased.

Information is from an article in "The British Golf Collectors Society" written by Dixon Pickup.
