History

AG Keith Davies Flying
Edward Keith Davies was born in 1885 and died in 1968. He was a pioneer in aviation and held the 22nd aviation certificate issued by the Royal Aero Club in 1910.  He served in 6 Squadron, Royal Flying Corp as a Captain and he was the first man to fly in India.  In the picture he is flying a French Hanriot Monoplane at Brooklands in 1910.

 

From RAFGS records, the first recorded match was first played in 1947 at Wimbledon GC (now Royal Wimbledon) but it is not known who won this match or in 1948.  The engraving on the Cup, which was presented in 1949, tells us the subsequent winners.   In the early days only the best golfers in the RAFGS were selected (the equivalent of Cat 1 golfers today).
