Who was H S Chips and what was he doing to be awarded this medal in 1916?

Now sometimes you just have to admit defeat.  

It’s not helped by the fact that I am not a sporty person and so the initials CFS coupled with the scene of a rugby match do not help identify the medal or the event.

The inscription on the back which would usually help runs, CFS, H S Chips, 1916 and the name Ellen Brothers who were the silversmiths.

But that is as far as it goes.

A search for H S Chips has proved a blank, Ellen Brothers threw up a few possible leads but CFS ran into  a brick wall.

So there it is, but I am not undaunted because I know that someone will come up with an answer, which may be just a bit of a clue or the full blown thing.

And I know David Harrop who owns it would be very pleased with whatever information bounces back once the post is out there.
