Jerseys for HMS Gloucester

By Malc King

At the club committee meeting on 21st February 1939, “the Chairman [Tom Voyce] stated that in conversation with the Mayor a suggestion was made that it would be a nice gesture if the Club presented to HMS Gloucester (the new Cruiser) a set of Gloucester Rugby Jerseys and that he had promised this would be done. His action was unanimously approved.”

A letter of thanks for these was received from Capt F R Garside RN, and read at the committee meeting on 14th March 1939.
