In September 1919, the children of Kildwick school were each presented with a Peace Medallion, by W.A. Brigg.  The medallion commemorated the signing of the Versailles Agreement, and was one of a number of designs used in different areas of the country

Photographs of this medallion have recently been donated to the project:

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The front shows a child receiving a gun from a kneeling soldier and presenting him with laurel leaves.  The child is watched over by an angel holding a dove of peace.

On the rear, the text reads:
