Lyndhurst Vixen

Found early last Sunday morning at a Flea Market off the North Circular Road a Challenge Medal awarded to 'Lyndhurst Vixen' at the Camborne Dog Show in the year of Arcadia 1893.  The medal was struck in low grade silver by the Birmingham silversmith J.A. Restall and would appear to have been worn around Lyndhurst's neck.  In Arcadia, upon this Sunday some one hundred years and more later we salute the Vixen and her owner A. Damarell as we do all dogs and owners who run wild at Flea Markets and Car Boot Sales.
