Information sought regarding mysterious medallion
The Mountain Club of South Africa has received an enquiry from a local lady who some years ago bought at auction in Cape Town a plaque, 8 cm. in diameter, with no provenance. The style of dress of the climbers suggests an English or New Zealand, rather than South African, origin, perhaps of the 1960s or before. The rucksack is a Bergan or Karrimor of that era. Could a club archivist or other members help to identify the date and story behind the plaque? Any ideas will be gratefully received.
Best wishes from the sunny Cape.
