Dave,
Thanks for your email. Attached (hopefully) is a photograph of Goldings sent to my father's brother in Australia I would imagine after the Great War 1914-1918. My Australian cousin gave it to me when we visited her some year ago. Written on the back it says 'The Lodge' Goldings.
Please feel free to print any of this information in your Guest Book and lets hope we get some feed back.
Regards Cliff Welham
