Replica Royal Humane Society Certificate

Alfred French was the first lifeguard at Tooting Bathing Lake. On 5 August 1907 he is known to have saved a man from drowning. Some reports say he saved two men. Later that year he was awarded a certificate on parchment from the Royal Humane Society. This is a replica of what his certificate may have looked like.
