"This is the print that got me the President's Trophy for the best print in the Beginners' Section in the EPS Members' Exhibition in 1961.  Its  title is: 'No sun, no moon, November'.   It was taken in the Botanics on a cold, foggy day.

As there were no other visitors, I had to use a tripod with delayed action, allowing me to take up my position on the bench."

Silver Medal

This is the Silver Medal that Allan was awarded for his print:  'No Sun, No Moon, November'. 

I did nor realise that this style of medal continued to be issued by EPS until as recently as 1961.  That was the Centenary Year for EPS.

This style of medal was was first awarded in the EPS Exhibition of 1902.
