They do have some information at Trinity House on yours and mine. I'm not sure how much, perhaps just the licence. If I ever get over there I will photograph what is there.

There is a discrepancy in their data regarding birth dates/ages, - just errors I think.

screen capture from an email last year:

Regarding the Rocket Apparatus Medals, I was sure someone published a roll of recipients, probably just name, station and date of award; but it might contain more.

I can't find any reference to such a book on the internet now - starting to think I imagined it! (I will ask the medal collecting types.)

Now the Club were handing out silver medals, spoons and cups on a regular basis - anyone seen any of this 'prize' material? or has it all been scrapped?
An ARC spoon emerged from a dresser at some point over Christmas, Iím guessing this was a Rifle Club prize via Grandad McQuillen of Amble.

The spoon possibly originated from the other side of the family - J Wilson is referenced as the winner of a silver spoon in an earlier post from Coquet:

Mr. R. Lyall was awarded the Donegal Badge.
It may be the same spoon. Attached is a photo of J Wilson with rifle and trophies.
