Default dug sports medals

Found in area yielding large and varied assortment of militaria. I very much doubt these were random losses but am inclined to believe they were discarded as unwanted rubbish and eventually found their way into the refuse chain and subsequently mixed among compost.

Unmarked old brass/bronze football and swimming medals, possibly type used for military events

Comments welcome

A lovely unusual find! I tend to agree with your thought. I've seen these medals displayed with other military medals given to the same recipient throughout the years.
