County Table Cloth update

Robin Frost rang me to say that he has been carrying out a really interesting study of the badges he has on the County Table Cloth ..... (comments to me on a postcard please!).

I did learn something about a couple of local clubs though. The cloth contains badges from a number of clubs who have long since disappeared including one local to Maylfower in Billericay known as Damon Archers. For some reason that name always conjures up an image in my mind of naked archers dancing around an Oak tree, but Robin tells me the name dervives from an anagram for 'Nomad', since apparently the club never had a fixed shooting ground and spent their time wandering the fields and wastelands of Billericay. Sounds like the Pikey's of the Archery world to me. I have to be carfeul what I say though since our current President was apparently one of this elite band of wanderers.

Robin's study has revealed that there are a number of clubs who do not have their badges on the cloth and he invites clubs to send in their badge to be added to this famous relic.

Here is a photo of some local Pikey's with the cloth, followed by Robin's research document. RM.
