The following was shared with me for the purpose of posting to Guildford & District. A medal awarded to George R Stentiford, a member of Order of the Buffaloes in the Jubilee Lodge (number 3508) at Guildford. Dated 24th November 1932
I was a little curious about George R Stentiford, so decided to have a little look at what paper trail he had left behind.
Firstly, I located a marriage of George to Clara Punter in Kingston Upon Thames

George's occupation showed that he was a professional footballer. A quick search on Google revealed a small amount of detail via Wikipedia. This confirmed that he started his football career in Kingston before moving to various clubs in the north of England before returning to Surrey and playing for Guildford United.
