The medals in this cabinet were awarded to Alan & Leslie Faber Hobson who were both killed in the First World War. They were presented to the University by their father, Sir Albert Hobson, who was a friend and supporter and member of the University from its foundation until his death in 1923, as a Treasurer 1910-1916, Pro Chancellor 1916-1913.

He was awarded an Honorary Degree of LLD 1920. He was a generous benefactor to the University throughout and on his death left a bequest which included £5,000 to build a sports pavilion at Norton in memory of his sons.
