Silver Holloway medal presented to the militant suffragette Louise Lilley.

Silver Holloway medal presented to the militant suffragette Louise Lilley bearing, in black paint, her prison wing number 'Dx3' and cell number '4'. On the reverse is engraved 'L Lilley March 9th to April 29th 1912 HL'. The badge was presented to Louise on her release from Holloway following a two month sentence of hard labour for breaking a window in the War Office. This was one of three medals presented to her on release. See also 2005.145/4 & 2005.145/6. This and a similar medal presented to Louise's sister Kate, reveal that the sisters were imprisoned in next door cells.

Both medals were passed down via Theresa Lilley to Clare Simpson, who donated them to the Museum of London.
