Twould be fair to say

 

school and I were a mix 'not made in heaven', rather purgatory - a place of suffering inhabited by those of us expiating our sins before entry to heaven.

Attention!   G. Lewis

 

I never know what will turn up in my email.

Needless to say, I was so very excited to hear recently from Jacob Clark who explained... 

Was working the other day and started chatting to an old fella who does a bit of prospecting. He found a metal tin full of trinkets, inside the tin were 3 fyansford football club Leigh league premiership medal. One from 1921 and 2 from 1922 all belonging to a G.LEWIS. being a local footballer myself I thought they were pretty cool and took some photos. Thought you might be intrested.

                                                                                           Jacob Clark

What a great find!!!!

Jacob, I really appreciate your thoughtfulness in contacting me.

Hopefully there is someone out there (grand-son or grand-daughter) who might be related to G. Lewis

It would be my guess that G. Lewis would have

been born during the early 1900s.

If there is anyone who can throw light on this

wonderful find please feel free to contact me at:
