HMS Royal Sovereign

5th January 2011, 16:17
I have a solid silver medal as follows:

On the front, the words HMS Royal Sovereign under a crown and lion.

On the reverse, this engraving: M.F. 1931 Orion Cup I.A. Jarvis

Any info most welcome. What was the Orion Cup, what does M.F. stand for? Who was I.A. Jarvis and what did he do? Does it have any value?

Thanks in advance
