A family member found this book online from their home in Sydney Australia and contributed lots of new material.
D. Rickard, aged 8, who drew the handsome WW2 era bomber in the front of this autograph book (the book lasted from WW1 - WW2). Identified himself as Doug Rickard from Austraila via the Great War Forum and provided superb background.
This cup was presented to South Beds Golf Club in 1916 by officers from the Artillery Training School at Biscot Camp in appreciation for the facilities offered to them by the Club. During the war, the Galley Hill area of the course was used as a rifle range on weekdays which led to the suspension of competitions, although social golf continued at the weekends including, for the first time, Sunday golf and weekend golf for ladies. The officers in charge of the camp were given the freedom of the course and made honorary members of the Club.
