1931 England International Cap.
A wonderful red velvet cap in fine condition with gold braid trim. The cap also has a gold braid embroidered date of '1931' with two roses and the word 'ENGLAND'. This was the property of William Martin (1906 1980) who was part of the Great Britain team that competed in the infamous Hitler games in Berlin in 1936. He was a brilliant swimmer who helped train his friend and colleague Edward Temme to become the first man to swim the Channel both ways.
