The HKSRFUR was founded in 1957. Walter Allwright was one of the co-founders.
Last Saturday, 21st February 2015, Walter celebrated his 100th Birthday with family, friends and rugby colleagues in Dublin, where Walter now lives.
We are grateful to Walter’s son Tony for letting us know as we were able to send our best wishes to Walter and have arranged to send him a suitable memento to mark both his birthday and his being a co-founder of our Society.
We are being sent a copy of Walter’s memoirs, which includes an account of his refereeing career in Hong Kong in the 1950s and 60s, and what prompted the creation of the Society. When received we shall arrange to make a copy available for all Society members.
