A lead-alloy medal struck in commemoration of Robert Raikes and The Sunday School movement. Robert Raikes, Philanthropist and Anglican layman (1735-1811) became proprietor of the Gloucester Journal on the death of his father in 1757, and used the newspaper to campaign for prison reform and working class education. In July 1780, Raikes and a local curate, Thomas Stock, started a Sunday School - originally for boys only - at St. Mary le Crypt Church in Gloucester. The original schedule for the schools, as written by Raikes was "The children were to come after ten in the morning, and stay till twelve; they were then to go home and return at one; and after reading a lesson, they were to be conducted to Church. After Church, they were to be employed in repeating the catechism till after five, and then dismissed, with an injunction to go home without making a noise." Raikes was not the first person to organise a school in a church but by giving it maximum publicity in his newspaper, he was able to spread his ideas to others. In 1786 it was claimed that there were over 200,000 children in England attending Sunday Schools.

20.84g Medal 25/10/2010 Park

Ancient Order of Foresters commemorative medal. The London United District of the Ancient Order of Foresters conducted their first benefit at the relocated ‘Crystal Palace’ at Penge, Kent in 1855. The medal probably commemorates this event. The Society was formed in Rochdale in August 1834, when over 300 branches of the Royal Foresters society (established in the 18th century) formed the new Ancient Order of Foresters.In 1874 the American and Canadian Foresters seceded from the Ancient Order of Foresters and set up the Independent Order of Foresters (IOF). The IOF's UK operation is now called Forester Life, based in Bromley, Greater London. The society became incorporated on the 1st January 2003, (in accordance with the provisions of The Friendly Societies Act 1992), and since this date they have taken over two smaller Friendly Societies, the first, in 2003 being the Tunstall Assurance Society, and then in 2005 the Leek Friendly Society. The society's local branches are termed Courts, rather than "Lodges" as in other friendly societies. They were named after the law courts of the royal forests, and performed the Ancient Ritual of the Society. The most famous was Court LUD No. 10,100, which was formed in 1947, by members of the London District Management Committee. However, owing to lack of members willing to take office, this Court was closed in 2004. The society had its own magazine Foresters Miscellany which ran from 1862 to 2008, when it was incorporated into a replacement called The Forester. The magazine is available on-line; it has been reduced in size and frequency, and only one edition has been produced in 2012.

'Western India Turf Club'. The Royal Western India Turf Club has a history spanning just over two centuries. It conducts racing at Mumbai's Mahalaxmi Racecourse (from November to April), including the McDowell's Indian Derby in February and Pune (from July to October), while Delhi races under its Rules. Its first meeting was held 10–11 January 1798, with two plates run in heats. Breakfast was served on the high grounds opposite Colonel Jones’ house and Captain G. Hall saluted the last race with fifteen guns. Captain G. Hall, Sir Charles Forbes, A. Campbell, P. Hadow and others formed the Bombay Turf Club in 1802 and they acquired land in Byculla to conduct racing; the balcony of the clubhouse was used as a private stand for the Members. Shortly thereafter the name was changed to the Western India Turf Club. For the major part of the nineteenth century, racing continued to be held at Byculla until in 1883 the venue was shifted to Mahalakshmi on land made available by Sir C N Wadia. The race course was originally built under the direction and supervision of Major JE Hughes. During this time Calcutta held the upper hand in Indian racing, but as the twentieth century dawned, Bombay became the “City of Gold.” The first running of the Eclipse Stakes of India in 1923 gave Bombay a race to rival the Viceroy’s Cup. New stands were commissioned in 1925 and then in 1935, King George V bestowed the privilege of prefixing the club’s name with “Royal.” In 1943 the first Indian Classics were run and when 21 years later the Indian Turf Invitation Cup came into being, Mahalakshmi was the chosen venue for its first running. Pune, 3 hours drive south-east of Bombay, the other centre at which the Royal Western India Turf Club conducts its racing is quite different. It is a monsoon track and is where the main Club House (with accommodation and ballroom) is. The track is tighter and has a shorter run-in, with the variable underfoot conditions making for some expected results. Many horses from Calcutta traditionally come over to Pune for their “summer spelling” and get ready for the big Cup Races on their home turf in the winter.

"Rotkäppchen" German for Little Red Riding Hood. 'In the 19th century two separate German versions were retold to Jacob Grimm and his younger brother Wilhelm Grimm, known as the Brothers Grimm, the first by Jeanette Hassenpflug (1791–1860) and the second by Marie Hassenpflug (1788–1856). The brothers turned the first version to the main body of the story and the second into a sequel of it. The story as Rotkäppchen was included in the first edition of their collection Kinder- und Hausmärchen (Children's and Household Tales (1812)).........The Brothers further revised the story in later editions and it reached the above mentioned final and better known version in the 1857 edition of their work.'
