HISTORY OF TROPHY SOUGHT

A TROPHY with a fascinating history will be presented at the Country Fair and Horse Driving Trials at Castle Kennedy at the weekend.

Owner of the Overall Clydesdale Champion will take home a trophy consisting of two mounted wild goat's horns embellished with high-quality Indian-style figurines, incense burners and orbs and a lettered plaque.

The fully-restored trophy has spent the past number of years at the Stranraer home of Jim and Wendy McColm.

It was presented to Hugh Hannah, a relation of Mrs McColm, by Mr P. Hannah and named as the Inch Ploughing Trophy of 1928. Beyond that the trophy is a mystery.

Now the organisers of the horse driving trials are keen to find out more. Anyone who can help should contact Sue Mattison on 01776 820341, hopefully before the presentation of prizes on Sunday.
