With Xmas Greetings

To: Miss Kathleen Rees, Ivydene Hall, Great Malvern

Scotland 2 goals

Wales 1 goal.

Wales ought to have won. Will send paper cutting tomorrow.

[Not sure what the match was, hockey perhaps? Ivydene Hall was the address of Malvern Girls’ College at the time. They moved in 1919 to the old Imperial Hotel. Alumnae of the College include Jane Davidson (previously a Minister in the Welsh Government), Barbara Cartland (novelist), Caroline Lucas (Green MP) and Elizabeth Lane (first female High Court judge).]
