One more - i found this which is the description that went with the photo i just added before.

Over 80 years ago - and all done for a good cause as well. Many thanks for sharing.

Darren (Getagrip) will love seeing this as well

Yeah that's awesome!

I think there is another member who joined a few months ago related to Jack too, so that's 3 relatives now and I think there was another who joined on the old site unless its one of the other 3 again?

Really good to see these pics and hear more of the history Smile

Many thanks for sharing! Smile

10 years wow such a long time ago. Do you know what happened to jack hoods darts that he used? We used to have the set at home a few years ago. Loved those darts

Jack Hood used his own darts that his company manufactured in the east end of London so it is unlikely that he had a specific set that he used. I know that the News of the World replica cup he won in 1932 was eventually given to a 'friend' and, as far as I know, has subsequently been regarded as 'lost' - probably melted down...

Excellent stuff grip, will be buying a copy for sure.

ChrisL

hi, i'm new to this forum & picked it up by accident whilst doing my family tree. Jack Hood was a relative of mine & i have a nice photo if you'd like me to post it?

Getagrip

Hi Chris thats awesome, yes please do post it!

And welcome to the forum!

ChrisL

I'll give it a go (I'm not very good at this stuff...)

OK, just tried that & it's crashed. Can I email it to you & you can post?
Jack Hood was my Nan's uncle. My dad remembers him well & says he was a great darts player. My dad played darts with him regularly. When I get time, I'll post a bit more.. I'll get some stories off my dad. Let me know about emailing the photo. Cheers

Hi Christine,

Welcome to Darts Nuts.

Any photos or stories (possibly memorabilia?) you have would be fantastic to see.

Getagrip

Here is the pic thanks to Christine, its a great pic I guess that is Jack on the right in the Bowler hat! Sad((1.14:

He looks like a sturdily built guy too.

Suart180

Fantastic photo.

Robbie the Robot

That is an incredible piece of history of our great game.

mc1958

Great photo - even though I was born not too far from Bow in Leyton, I've never ever played on a London Fives board. I believe there is still a league in the area that plays on the board.

Getagrip

I'm fascinated by the big handles on the top of the boards too!

mc1958

They were to hang it on the wall at a rough guess. We used to have an old cork board hanging up in the back garden for when we played - you didn't get all this rotating the boards or anything as there wasn't any sisal or whatever to get worn out. All we used to do with it was plonk it in a (big) bowl of water when it wasn't in use as that livened it back up.

Getagrip

yeah that would have been the Elm boards, never seen one myself.

Shafted

Great thread, and Fantastic pic , It would be great to hear of any tales you have of him Christine, I have a set of Jack Hood darts identical to the set getagrip used to have in the News of the World Champion metal case

jake8380

That is awesome and nice that a member is a relative of Jack Hood!

I am Sally, Jack Hood's granddaughter, living in New Zealand. My mother, Sarah, was his youngest child. She died last year aged 100. We have been fortunate to meet Patrick Chaplin via the internet and it was mum's great privilege to assist him with his some of his research for his book.

Hello Sally! Good to have you here. She done well to get to 100 but also a shame to hear of her passing. Great that she was able to help Patrick though Smile
