Unknown medal - help appreciated

Recommended Posts

Hallo all, I might be wrong here so mods please feel free to move or delete this topic if inappropriate.

I own this little silver (?) cross, we assume it was bought wherever decades ago and has no family ties. It seems to be of UK origin - inscribed "Harris Pairs cox 1913" and I wonder if this is some sports /masonic /club medal? Or does it have an unofficial military background.

Any thoughts on this little cross appreciated (I dont collect medals). The color is silver in reality - the lights made it look like copper.

Looks like a sports medal and my guess is as follows.....    Last name Harris, and Pairs for Rowing, Cox. for Coxswain.....   


Thanks Mike, really appreciate your input! Today I got another tip from a friend - it might not even be an "award" but perhaps it is a so called "watch fob" used from victorian times to pull the pocket watch out. Never heard about such but you never cease to learn. Research goes on...
