That's an interesting Great war memorial. It looked like he was doffing his cap but he his holding a lurel wreath. A nice golf themed memorial.

Thanks for posting it John.

Thanks

Adam

It's a shame there wasn't a bit more detail about where the memorial came from. It gives a date though so it might be easier to track down the details in local papers or the club's own paperwork.

Thanks
