We also introduced this year a new feature in the sports – a ‘Tug of War’ between the Q.S.S. & T.B.B. 12 a side. The Town Boys won this year – pulling over the Q.S.S. twice. The first pull was quickly gained by the T.B.B., but the second was a longer matter, the Q.S.S. offering more resistance, but we pulled them over & won.

The team was – W.G. Bell, C. Campbell, F.G. Clarke, F. Newington, J. M. Stuart Edwards, H.S. Westmorland (Grant’s), O. Bury, Palmer, H. Robson, C.V. Wilks, (Rigaud’s), J. Frere & W. Ritchie (HBB).
