2017Awarded to the winners of the Pairs Match betweenAero GS and the Royal Air Force GS held at West Byfleet Golf Club
Ray Piercey and David John etched their names into the history of both the Royal Air Force Golfing Society and the Aero Golfing Society through their stalwart support over many years. In their memory and to honour of their prominent contribution, their wives, Patsy Piercey and Marjorie John have graciously presented this Quaich to be played for on an annual basis.
Although Ray and David were highly individual and amusing personalities they had much in common. Both had learned to fly in Canada at the beginning of the war and, as their careers developed both joined West Byfleet golf club where both became Captain (and, in David’s case, President), both joined the RAFGS where Ray became Chairman and David, a committee member, and both joined the Aero GS where David became Captain in 1994. Their support for the RAFGS Scottish tour was legendary and the choice of a Quaich as a trophy is entirely appropriate. The loss of both has triggered this outstanding opportunity to remember them.
The format of the Pairs Match is decided by the team Captain on an alternating annual basis.
