The latest Dulwich Society journal features two Dulwich Hamlet related articles
The first, titled DulwichHamlet Football Club and Lorraine ‘Pa’ Wilson is a very informative piece about the founder of Dulwich Hamlet.
Sharon O’Connor, one of the journal’s regular contributors, has uncovered details about Pa Wilson’s early life that add to our understanding of what made him tick.
The Hamlet Historian was sourced for the article – originally titled Lorraine ‘Pa’ Wilson (1865-1924): Founder of Dulwich Hamlet Football Club and practical social idealist. This was sent to us a few months ago to confirm some details. In the much longer unedited version acknowledgement was kindly made to us. However, in the printed version the acknowledgement has disappeared altogether. Sharon has since emailed us to apologise for the omission.
Her original version, which runs to 2,600 words, was sadly hacked to pieces to fit the quarterly journal. Presumably the missing 1300 words were sacrificed to make way for the editor’s own article about the current situation at Dulwich Hamlet FC. The less said about Green’s piece the better.
The HH also provided some excellent photographs but these were discarded altogether. Instead, for reasons only known to the editorial team, they have thrown in a picture of a group of Dulwich Hamlet schoolchildren from 1906!
