Snippets: Golf Clubs & a Royal Scandal Delivered to Mr D K Hall of Sundridge in Eastbourne, both Mr & Mrs Hall were keen golf players in 1927 Mr Hall won the Prichard Cup & in 1935 his wife won the Culmore Cup. There is a note on the chassis card that GUK34 was originally destined for India - 1904 DK Hall had an opening handicap at the Calcutta Golf Club (opened in 1829 & is the oldest golf club outside the British Isles).
