Former Watford FC director George Timberlake's medals on display at Watford Museum
George Timberlake was also a borough councillor and played a prominent role in the civic development of Watford during the early 20th Century.
Watford’s elected mayor, Dorothy Thornhill, said: "The medals represent a significant individual and are illustrative of the role he played in Watford’s history and the heritage of the area. We are thrilled they are now part of our Museum’s collection, and available for the public to enjoy."
The two 90ct. gold and enamel medals awarded to George Timberlake in the 1920s cost £300. The museum received funding from the Hertfordshire Heritage Fund (HHF) to purchase the medals.
The HHF was launched in 1988 to support museums and archives in Hertfordshire and enable them to purchase items relating to the county’s past and make them accessible to the public.
