Fond memorises of George

Many years ago received the RP by post and the editor

was a greyhound man and his dog called Charlie chequer was

running that Friday night when we were marking for a race

he stated that his dog would be hard to beat

Said to George want to put £20 on a dog called Charlie Chequer

but did not know how to place a bet

Off George went to the bookies with a few quid including mine and CC won we had a

night to remember but very sore heads the next morning

The memorises will live

Sorry to hear this.

When George had to give up the sport He gave me some of his birds and a wee loft which he would take nothing for.

A true gentleman of the sport.

I have one of his birds racing today with Ayrshire.I will think fondly of George when it returns

RIP old Friend.
