THE HIGHTOWN CLUB.

UNVEILING OF ROLL OF HONOUR BY MRS. F.N. BLUNDELL.

 
     An event which will rank as one of the most notable in the history of the Hightown Club, Hightown, was the unveiling of the Club's Roll of Honour, which took place in the beautiful grounds at the main pavilion on Saturday afternoon, under ideal conditions, the weather being fine and sunny.
     Punctually at the appointed interval arranged for the cricket and tennis matches, Mr. T.H. Russell (Chairman of the Committee), briefly and very suitably explained how the idea originated, and then called upon Captain Blundell to perform the task which he had kindly consented to do.
     Captain Blundell, in the course of a happily worded speech, commented on the honour that had been conferred upon him in asking him to come that afternoon to unveil the memorial to perpetuate the memory of those members of the Club who had given up their lives and of those who had served in the interests of their country. He said that the "boys" had "played cricket" to the last, and no honour, however great, could adequately repay them for the great sacrifice they had rendered for the protection of our homes and country. Some of them had been privates and some officers, but the War had by contact made them understand and appreciate each other as they had never done before. They stood as one man for a just cause, and now that the War was over, he expressed the hope that the spirit of comradeship which had prevailed in the War would continue, for the well-being of the community. (Applause.) The Club, at the outset of the War, had a membership of 130 playing members, of whom 117 had actually joined the Army, and 17 had paid the supreme sacrifice. The Club, he said, ought to feel proud of such a record (applause), and he mentioned as an inspiring instance that one of the members who joined the Army as a private was at the present time commanding a London regiment, in Lieut-Colonel, A.D. Dervis-Jones, D.S.O., M.C. (loud applause.) In bringing his remarks to a close, Captain Blundell paid a high tribute to the devotion of the ladies during the war, and asked Mrs. Blundell to unveil the Memorial, which was universally admired.
     Little Miss Bathgate, at the conclusion of the ceremony, presented Mrs. Blundell with a bouquet of white heather, which was gracefully acknowledged.
     Mr. T.H. Russell proposed a vote of thanks to Capt. Blundell for his kindness in being present that afternoon, which was heartily approved in the usual "Hightown way."
     Afterwards Mrs. Blundell kindly presented the prizes to the winners of the tennis handicaps and American tournaments, viz.:- The Misses Baker, Peggy Campbell; Messrs. J.K. Turner, M.S. Yates, E. Norburn and E.L. Krohn.
