I was looking through my Grandfather's rifle shooting medals when I found your picture. My medal is I think silver but I don't know the year. His name was J G Proudfot and he shot for Scotland in the 30's and 40's.

When my Dad, John R. Louttit died in 2002, I found a Scottish Twenty Club medal but the was lion missing. My Dad's Grandfather also named John R. Louttit shot for Scotland in the 1800's. I would like to know if anyone could tell me where I could purchase this medal in order to replace the lion in the original medal
