Silver Holloway medal presented to the militant suffragette Kate Lilley.

Silver Holloway medal presented to the militant suffragette Kate Lilley bearing, in black paint, her Holloway wing number 'Dx3' and cell number '5'. On the reverse is engraved 'K Lilley March 9th to April 29th 1912 HL'. The medal was presented to Kate 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 2005.145/1 & 2005.145/3. This, and a similar medal presented to Kate's sister Louise, 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.
