    The origins of Willy Wilson Gold Badge

    By Mr. D. Wells ZS1AU

    When awards were brought into being within the SARL, the highest was Honorary Life member followed by the Gold Badge and then the Jack Twine Merit Award.

    Harold Wilson's ZS1BF served a record term of 12 consecutive years as President. To avoid confusion Harold was called Willy as there were four Harolds around at the time.

    When told by Colin Duff ZS1CA that Willy was going to retire at the next AGM and what do we give a man who has already received every award of the SARL, Dennis ZS1AU out of sheer intuition, suggested that the Gold Badge be renamed the Willy Wilson Gold Badge.

    Willy Wilson set the ultimate example of dedication, honesty, loyalty and devotion in our hobby and already held every award within the SARL.

    At the 1971 SARL AGM held in Cape Town, Willy retired from Council as President and was awarded the Willy Wilson Gold Badge.

    Refer to section 22.2 of the Constitution and Rules of the SARL for further details. 5

Jack Twine Merit Award

To recognise qualities such as unselfishness, clean operating and a genuine interest in Amateur Radio and

    its affairs. This prestigious Award will be made to Amateurs who, in the opinion of their fellow amateurs

    and the League's Council, exemplify the qualities desirable in a Radio Amateur.
