Norton badge

-SG- Reece tells me he was given the Norton badge illustrated in his photos not long ago.  It was apparently made by the Birmingham Medal Company (founded 1921) and if the rocker gear on the engine image is anything to go by, probably dates from 1923 or 1924. Just when and why it was issued and to whom it was given, I have no idea!  Any clues would be interesting.  Meanwhile, thanks to Reece for sending in the photos.
