1922 Olympic medal on Everest

Kenton Cool’s expedition to Mount Everest later this year with the 1922 Olympic medal awarded to Dr Arthur Wakefield highlights the huge value of mountain heritage.  It also sees Kenton honouring a promise originally made by Deputy Leader Lt Colonel Strutt to take a gold medal to the summit of Mount Everest ninety years ago.
