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’
|1956||William (Bill) Tucker|
|2005||Anthony (Tony) Ikel|
Many of the above named are sadly no longer with us having either passed away or left Essex archery but fortunately there are still people left who are willing to put in the many hours of work needed to ensure the County runs smoothly.
