Extracts below are two items taken from Minutes of GRFC Committee Meetings (i) 8 May and (ii) 29 May 1956 respectively.
(i) “Club Flag. The Gen. Secretary reported that the Club Flag was missing. This had apparently been taken from his office on Saturday evening, April 28th. It was suspected that members of the Devonport Services team had taken the flag and the Gen. Secretary was directed to make enquiry of the Services Secretary with a view to securing return of the flag.”
(ii) “Club Flag. It was reported that the flag had now been found at Devonport and would be returned. The Hon. Sec. of the Services Club had suitably apologised.”
