Medal found

Classic Dirtbike - - Letters -

When out with his metal de­tec­tor at a de­tect­ing rally in Hamp­shire this Septem­ber, my son found an old ISDT ‘In­ter­na­tional Six Days’ Medal. At least that’s what we think it is, it’s a gold medal about 2in in di­am­e­ter. We would be in­ter­ested in its history and if we can give it back to its owner/win­ner. If you can help that’s great or point us in the di­rec­tion we need to go.

Neil, the Hamp­shire lo­ca­tion of the medal is in­ter­est­ing be­cause long-time ISDT team mem­bers Ken Heanes and John Giles hail from that county. Not only that but Heanes hosted the likes of Steve Mcqueen and Bud Ekins who were mem­bers of the Amer­i­can ISDT squad too. Also many ISDT prac­tice ses­sions were con­ducted at Bor­don Camp in Hamp­shire. Hope­fully we will be able to pro­vide in­for­ma­tion. Tim
