Seth Plum's (the real one) 1923 England cap now in the Museum

You know all that money we raise from selling stuff on here and ebay or from your donations?

Well, we raise the money so that when we are offered an unique item from the club's history we can buy it.

Seth Plum was part of the Charlton giant killing side of 1923 and that was a factor in him being called up to play for England.v France. England won 4 - 1 with Plum at right half.

Despite the result he was never picked again for his country but he will forever be our first ever international.

So when we were offered the chance to buy his cap we couldn't pass up the opportunity.

Thanks to @seth plum who made a very generous donation to the cost of his namesake's headwear but any other Addicks feel free to chip in too.

Caps then were colour coded for each game and not the uniform blue with the three lions issued now hence why it is strawberry and cream.

It has gone straight on display, in an alarmed cabinet, in the Museum.

  • thought that was the only sort of cabinet we had now?

    oops, wrong thread
  • By strange co-incidence, our @seth plum also has a cap dating back to about 1923, as well as a scarf and a nice pair of hobnail boots.

    But his neck is not as long and black as the poor guy in the photo.... :wink:
  • GHF a generous contribution yourself sir.
    Charlton Athletic a club founded in the grim industrial Thameside streets by 15 year old boys has its first full England international within 18 years.
  • Excellent work by all at the museum. *doffs cap*
