Default Empire Swimming Club Blazer Badge, Provenance To Ian Tirrell.

I bought this a couple of months ago just because I liked it, thought I'd show it as it may be of interest to some.

A Blazer Badge, the design based on the lion designed by Charles Herrick for the British Empire Exhibition in 1924, it measures 11 cm high by 9 cm wide.

Provenance, such as it is, to the South African swimming champion and coach, is provided by the accompanying paper.
