Badge of the Day #51 (Marlow)

The latest example in the badge collection features grand old Marlow, another of those for-whatever-reason irresistible names of English non-League football to whom we pin our supportive affections & have for some considerable time, whatever the ups & downs of the team’s fortunes.
When one observes the representation of the swan that forms a significant aspect of the club’s emblem, & considers the location of the town, on the Thames, artistic thoughts inevitably turn to Stanley Spencer & his depictions of ‘upping’.
