  Paul Lovell has contacted our Chairman, Terry Gill. Paul recently bought from America via a well known auction web site, a silver plated cup which has written on it:

B FLIGHT

249
G C SQUADRON
Apart from,  made in England and EPNS (Meaning Silver Plated), there is an
unreadable stamp on it, but sadly no date. The Gold Coast reference puts it
as 1941 onwards. See photograph.

Does anyone know of it’s history?
