British Golf Notice circa 1940

With thanks to El Presidenté of the BGC.

You have to hand it to the British, when it comes to golf…and “rules”

German aircraft from Norway would fly on missions to northern England; because of the icy weather conditions, the barrels of their guns had a small dab of wax to protect them. As they crossed the coast, they would clear their guns by firing a few rounds at the golf courses. Golfers were urged to take cover.

This notice posted in war-torn Britain in 1940 for golfers with stiff upper lips.

You have to admit — these guys really had guts!

And, you thought you were a tough weather golfer.
