Royal Society For The Protection Of Life From Fire Rare Specimen Medal, 3rd Type. Holt Deputy Member of Committee 1851. Overall beautiful medal with a hairline scratch going along the edge as seen in photos. Saved from the Flames, by Roger Willoughby and John Wilson states:'Among the type III awards were several honorary or commemorative presentations. A number of bronze medals were thus given to the Society Vice-presidents, committee members and the Honorary Surgeon in 1852.The precise number of such honorary awards is not noted, though the Fifteenth Annual Report of the Royal Society for the Protection of Life from Fire London, 1851, pp. 6-7 lists 28 people on the Society's Committee of Management, added to which it details 13 Vice-Presidents. Adding the Honorary Surgeon to this number gives 42 candidates for these commemorative issues. It seems possible that other Society officers, such as the Secretary, the 3 Collectors and 2 Inspectors who are also listed in the Annual Report may have been included in this distribution of these awards.
