Proposed memorial to George Latham in Newtown


August 2, 1939
Sir, – May I, through your courtesy, draw the attention of your readers to the proposed memorial to the late Captain George Latham? Apart from his long service as trainer of the Cardiff City team he is remembered no doubt in Cardiff and district by many who personally benefited by his expert treatment, so willingly bestowed in the relief of suffering. During the football close seasons, which he usually spent at his native town, he devoted much of his holiday time in voluntary service to sufferers.

The movement for a memorial was originated by our county hospital board and has the support of our district council and all the sports organisations in the town. The form which the memorial will take is left to a future meeting of subscribers, but the committee are aiming at collecting at least 300 guineas.

Subscriptions and offers of help in the collection of funds should be addressed to me as hon. secretary. – Yours, &c.
Ernest C. Morgan, 18 Market Street, Newtown, N. Wales.
