2020: Presentation of Ribbons From Munich Wreath

Having recovered the 2020 ribbons, the MMMF chose to donate this set, from the fans wreath laid in Trudering Munich on 6th February 2020, to all the Reds at the Bishop Blaize in memory of Big Fred, Freddie Henshaw. Joining us to make the presentation was Fred’s daughter, Louise.

Below are 2 photos and a video of the presentation which took place on Friday 3rd December and photos with the ribbons in situ

The short event was opened by our Chairman Pat Burns. The official presentation to Ben Plunkett, Manager of the Bishop Blaize, was made by Tony Crook, MMMF Vice Chairman, who was a lifelong friend of Fred’s, accompanied by his daughter, Louise Nowell.

The Bishop Blaize Reds are now added to the list of previous recipients, which include: Harry Gregg, Jimmy Murphy and Tommy Taylor.

The inscription on the mounting inside the frame reads:
