The Association of Leeds & District Rifle and Revolver Clubs was registered in 1973 and was removed from the register of charities in 1995:

Though I oersonally don't know what this medal is for it has been great looking up badges and medals concerning Leeds on my Laptop. maybe its 1950s onwards as most of the old medals I remember seeing were more ornate than that one.

A for Amatuer or Amalgamated xxx rather than Association?

Or possibly Leeds Rotary Club?
