About this memory

Far left - Harry Redpath (secretary) and Peter McKenzie (uncle of George MacKenzie).

Jimmy Turnbull (light-coloured leotard with lion rampant) and George McKenzie (Scotland tracksuit top) were two of five wrestlers provided by the club for the 1958 Empire Games in Cardiff.

"[The club facilities included] a wrestling mat, ASCOT gas water heater for shower, 'free' weights, NO heating and a lot of dedication.

"I'm on my back - my usual wrestling position - with Ronnie McKenzie showing the hold, and George McKenzie (no relation) explaining the hold." - Jim Dignall [2005]
