Moeran's School Prizes  Ian Maxwell

Normally, I would have posted this on the Moeran Forum but it has become so
polluted with spam recently that it's getting difficult to read.

Does anybody have any information about Moeran's School Prizes? According to
Barry's Chronology, while he was at Uppingham, he won the "Speech Day prize"
for Violin and Piano in 1909 and the "Speech Day prize" for Piano in 1911.
Additionally, the volume of Beethoven Piano Sonatas in the Moeran Archive in
Melbourne suggests that it was a Prize from Suffield Park School in 1908.

Thus we have (probably):

1908       Suffield Park School Prize - Beethoven Sonatas

1909       Uppingham School Violin Prize and Piano Prize (2 prizes?) - ?

1911       Uppingham School Piano Prize - book by Parry on Music Theory

Can anybody add more detail or make corrections to this list?
