 ARCHIVED MATERIAL

 

Due to the diligence of past and present club officials, the arrival of modern technology and the hard work of one particular club member, OAA proudy present a compilation of club documentation covering the years between 1892 and 1942.The presentation is offered here in Portable Document Format (PDF), a very nicely scanned and organised archive undertaken by Mr. Huw Daniel in 2007 to who we extend our gratitude.
