Pinning peace medals

Maidenhead children were presented with something to remember the end of the war by.

King Street School
4th November 1919

The Mayor, accompanied by the Mayoress, and the Clerk to the Education Committee, visited this afternoon to distribute the Peace Medals to the children. Time would not permit for him to hand each child his medal, so he pinned one on the Head Teacher & asked the teachers to do likewise for the children.
