‘The Fours’ were rowed on Wednesday Ap. 24. Four crews trained for the exeat but only 3 came to the scratch. The names are as follows:
Cox. J Chapman
Cox H Walker
Cox. T Chapman
Nicholl’s crew unfortunately had to scratch before the day, Barnes & McEwan being out of school. The race was one of the best ever witnessed, as far as the Old Swan (the course being from Battersea to Putney Bridge) they were all almost as close together as at the start. At the railway bridge Oldman was leading by half a length. Trevor & Tomlinson being close together. Oldman increased his lead till he won by three lengths, Tomlinson being about the same distance behind Trevor.
