A very early Arsenal medal: a silver & enamel Woolwich Arsenal Football & Athletic Company Ltd., 1894, medal awarded to R. Gage, hallmarked 1892, named to the reverse.
The named individual on the medal is believed to be Theodore Richard Gage (1874-1940), although generally recorded in census returns as Richard Gage. The Gage family lived in Herbert Road, Plumstead, quite close to the Manor Ground. Arsenal did have a Director called Tom Gage who was elected to the board on 12th June 1897 but died six months later at the age of 28. These two gentlemen could well have been related. There is no record of a Gage ever being on the playing staff.
