This large shield belonged to County Boys School and moved to our present site when CBS closed and Wetheriggs School opened. The shield is made of wood, with a metal plate inscription as follows:
PENRITH BOYS COUNTY SCHOOL
R E REAY ESQ
An Old Boy of The School
There is an engraving of a scholarly nature – books, quill pen and lamp - and it is rather large, measuring about 75cms x 55cms across. We have taken the shield to Penrith Museum and they will either add it to their stock or find a suitable place to display it.
