Red Tassel Award List

The Red Tassel is given in recognition of service to the County by reason of enthusiasm and practical work in the interests of archery in Essex.

This award is most highly prized in Essex archery, you cannot win it with shooting skill or short bursts of work for the County, only by long years of concentrated and unremitting ‘slog’
