Templecombe Torus

Templecombe Torus.jpg

This dog was found wandering in London during the bombing and though the Kennel Club accepted him as a true Mastiff his owners and papers were all lost.  He was taken in by a Miss Fawell on the south coast, who presented in his memory the Templecombe Torus Trophy in 1984 to be awarded annually at Bournemouth Ch Show. Unfortunately there are no longer CC's on offer at this show. A very interesting article was written about him by Graham Hicks (Jilgrajon), in a club newsletter in the 80's.
