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.
