Very pleased to get this example of the medal today.

They have been discussed on here before but I am attaching some notes which came with the medal.

The Lucas Tooth Trophy is still awarded in Lincolnshire ACF to the best Detachment of the year. It may not, for obvious reasons, be awarded this year. I'm pretty sure that Derbyshire ACF also award a Lucas Tooth trophy annually too.

To the best of my knowledge, the medals are no longer awarded.

I now understand that Lucas Tooth trophies are still awarded in parts of Scotland.

It seems that the following ACF Counties still compete for the Lucas-Tooth Trophy :-
Lincolnshire
Derbyshire
Shropshire
Somerset
Cleveland
Cambridgeshire
West Lothian
West Lowland

There may be others that I haven't yet found. If you didn't already know, the competition was originally founded (and funded) by the wonderfully named Sir Hugh Vere Huntly Duff Munro-Lucas- Tooth !

A pleasure Peter.

A few more snippets I have found from the annual Journals. Can't say if it is the same for the other Counties but for Essex the trophy is a 5' x 3' shield and presented annually to the platoon (now detachment) "achieving the most" during the training year, usually done on a cumulative points basis.
