Spoons

Spoons were often awarded as prizes in regimental and other competitions.  Some spoons were made of silver, others Electro-Plated Nickel Silver.  Some feature regimental designs along with rifles or golf clubs.  Some are inscribed with the name of the winner and the competition.  Others are not inscribed.
