An old HUNTER VALLEY TROPHY saved from the dump. After receiving a Phone call from a person from Largs who was cleaning his shed out and found an old trophy from previous owners. Asked me if I would be interested in the Trophy. I traveled to Largs and was given the Trophy which dates back to 1915 and has the Newcastle and Wallsend Rifle Clubs mentioned on the Trophy , these clubs are mentioned in the West Wallsend Clubs history and affiliation.
