Footnotes

  • The original AA membership and badges numbered 21 and 22 were issued to Mr Hamilton Fletcher in 1906. They were made in hand cut brass by Nash & Hull. The brass number 22 was broken in an accident, but when Mr Fletcher tried to get an exact copy it was too late because the badge pattern had been changed to include the word 'Secretary' under the signature of Stenson Cooke on the front, and the phone and telegram numbers on the reverse. A later issued badge from 1909-10 was struck with the number 22 and issued as a replacement, it is that badge on offer today.
