Dunky Wright Correspondence

The DM Wright/Dunbartonshire Cup Saga 

When Dunky Wright resigned from Clydesdale Harriers in 1923 he took with him the Dunbartonshire Cup.   There is a whole series of letters, claims, etc that are detailed to some extent in Colin Shields’s book “Whatever the Weather” but much more completely on the linked page on this website/ 

The correspondence here covers the ‘end game’ of the quest for the trophy with Dunky having the final say in a funny letter – part bitter, part humorous – bringing the sage (it lasted for four years +) to an end.  It is however clear that he was not happy in being ‘found out’.   Mr Millar, referred to in the letters and postcards is Tom Millar, club secretary.
