on board P.& O. liner “Chitral” 1933
We had a race meeting the other evening; it was quite exciting. The race card is
enclosed. The dogs are toys on wheels & drawn by a string which is wound up round a
drum by the Jockey who sits with her back towards the course so that she cannot see how
the race is going… My dog won the second race & I won 20/- but had to give the Jockey
10/- for her efforts.
