Bradford City Tramways

From World of Tokens
Jump to navigation Jump to search

On some of the tokens is a tongueless boar. This is the helmet sign on the arms of Bradford, seen on other tokens. It refers to the boar of Cliffe Wood. A boar terrorised Bradford. The local lord offered a reward for whoever killed the boar. A hunter discovered where the boar came to drink and killed it. He cut the tongue to prove he was the killer. Another man came along, cut off the head and claimed the reward also, but since the tongue was missing, it was clear who had killed the boar.
