An idea?

Being a bell enthusiast I thought how I could have a personal celebration of Pompey's cup win by having a bell made to commemorate it. Whitechapel Bell Foundry received a visit from me the week following the final and I met Steve McEwan to discuss details. I gave him an indication of what I wanted, engraving requirements etc. But I asked him to come up with something original for the handle.
Early in July the bell was ready and I collected it from the foundry.
I was delighted. Steve came up with a special handle all right! A bronze FA Cup lookalike! It now sits in my collection in a prominent spot as a constant reminder of a special day.
