Here is a link to a photo of the Memorial Cup. It was donated in 1919 as a memorial to the Canadian dead of WW1. There is a family connection because Ernest Coy Chatfield was one of those casualties.

Each of the small plaques has the name of the winning team and the names of the players. It is one of the most difficult trophies to win so the competition is intense. The cup is awarded to the champion of Canadian junior hockey each spring at the championship tournament which is held in a different city each year. This past spring it was held in Vancouver, BC. It may not be that close to us in the future so we got tickets and spent ten days in Canada and saw a lot of great hockey.
