    1940s Sports Certificates

    Sports Day 1941 took place on a dull and cold, but dry day, on 24th May.  We are told that the weather and the consequent state of the track helped to prevent any outstanding running times.

    These sports certificates from that day show that K R D Wiggins performed consistently well at long and short distance running, gaining a second place in the 100 yards, the 220 yards and the quarter mile race and first place in the 440 yards flat race.  These certificates also give an indication of the type of events that took place at that time, with K R D Wiggins winning first place in the Messengers Cycle Race.
