" NOTTINGHAM GOLFER KILLED News has been received in Nottingham that Private Alfred Bonner, of the Sherwood Foresters, who for several years has acted as professional at the Bulwell Forest Golf Club, has been killed in action. His Father was Station Master at Bulwell Forest Station when Bonner, as a lad, became assistant to Walter Tedder, who he succeeded in the capacity of professional. A fine player, Bonner had a capital style, and played some brilliant golf at times, notably at Hollinwell in an exhibition match two or three years ago, when he was partnered by Harry Vardon. He joined the army barely two years ago, and the news of his death will be received with keen regret by all golfers in Nottingham and the district "
