found by j.e. and r.e.

We found this on Anzac Day 2001 in the driveway of a house up for auction in Brunswick East. The house was in its original 1920s state, and looked like it had until recently been inhabited by its original 1920s owner.

I wasn't sure what the medal was for at first; it looked vaguely church-related, or masonic, with that picture of a dark and forbidding temple. And wasn't that a Latin inscription? Quo... quoi...

Quoits. The Melbourne Rope Quoits Association.

Every backyard pastime should have a keepsake as grand.
