We got this email from Rachel trying to track down a rowing family
I have been looking for some help with a book I found over 6 months ago. It is signed by the author FJ Hunt and is a history rowing book. I absolutely love it and have read it many times. It’s from Deal, Walmer and Kingsdown rowing club. I look forward to a reply thanks Rachel
We asked Rachel for more detail and she added
“The front cover says Deal Walmer and Kingsdown amateur rowing club 1927-1977. A history of 50 years achievements.
It was written by FJ Hunt and was dedicated to the rowing members lost on active service in World War II. F J Hunt has signed and dated the 1st page July 1977. The book itself tells of his journey with the club when it was first started and founded by Ernest Charles in 1927.
I believe that there was not many of these books printed and I have tried to research but the only thing I can find is this book posted on a rowing history book.
On reading this book I was made to feel a part of the rowing history and was thinking that I had to ensure this book was eventually back where it belonged if this is the only one of its kind. Could you tell me If you’ve ever heard of this book and FJ Hunt the captain of the club for many years or the Hunt family are they still around.
I look forward to a reply, Many thanks.
Well we had a look and Deal, Walmer and Kingsdown ARC still exists and have made contact with the club via their website to see if the Hunt family are still involved.
Do any of the Rowperfect readers have contacts at the club or know the Hunt family and can help Rachel get the book returned to them?
