Bronze medal inscribed with the text “THE ARROL MEDAL”. There are two medals, one with a lilac silk ribbon and bar (2013/017) and one on its own (2013/017.1). The medal depicts a workman holding a hammer in his right hand with factory behind. The workman has his left elbow resting on a shield bearing an image of the Forth Bridge. Above the shield is an olive branch. The words “THE ARROL MEDAL” are inscribed at top left. The reverse is blank. The bar bears a Forth Bridge motif. Formerly on display at the Forth Bridges Visitor Centre, South Queensferry.
The original dies for the medal and bar are in the possession of Alexander Kirkwood & Son, 13 Albany Street, Edinburgh.
The second image shows the medal and original die (see https://ice-museum-scotland.hw.ac.uk/product/2013-016/ for the other medal and bar depicted).
