British woman enlists Saanich News readers to help with medallion mystery

An English woman has traced the roots of a century-old family heirloom back to Saanich

An English woman has traced the roots of a century-old family heirloom back to Saanich, where she hopes to unearth the story behind the artifact.

Judith Beeby of Northamptonshire, England has turned to readers of the Saanich News for details on a silver medallion passed down to her by her grandmother.

The medallion features a golden half-soccer ball on one side and an inscription on the other which reads: “Won by S.F.C. Saanich Fair Oct 5th 1912 W.J. Apps.”

While Beeby has some distant ties to Canada, the history behind the medallion and the identity of W.J. Apps remain a mystery.

Anyone with insight into the item can contact Beeby at richard.beeby1@tesco.net.
