i was so thankfull for richard for finding me this forum, my great grandfather arther ransome played for kings lynn, born and bread all his life there as well. and i have never seen any pictures of him untill now, great to see him with his team the linnets, from 1908 onwards hes even mentioned as a top goal scorer, cant wait to show my son who plays now, he thought it was great he had a great great grandfather who was kinda famous. i am so happy now, always got told about him playing for them and how he was very good at football seen his name on the results page of king lynn town fc going back a hundred years and that was good but to see these pictures has made my day.
thanks mel.

Regulars at that time were Terry, Chase, Bannister, Massingham and Portfleet

There could be a clue in the shirts with the black and white strip.
Lynn colours were black and white until March 1923 and then blue and gold until 1926.

"Lynn looked very smart in their new jerseys on Saturday. The new colours of black and white stripes may not be so gay as the old blue and yellow, but there is no danger of their fading."

my great grandfather arthur ransome is in the postcard bottom right.he started playign for them from 1908 and was a regular for them for 7 years +

Anyone have any ideas on this postcard?
I am told it is circa 1912. The KL can be clearly seen on the ball but the wording below it is not clear.
Unfortunately I have no further information.

On the first page, 4th picture, 2nd row and second in from the left is Ted Woodhouse, and again in the last picture on page 2 back row 4th from the left. Not sure about the date, probably just after the first world war.

Well spotted. I hadn't noticed the initials on the bags. Last letter a D, second letter F or E.

The message on the reverse of the postcard relates to my grandfather's work (P.O.) and is signed by A E D. Looking at the names on the PO war memorial there is a A E Dobson. Wonder if the right person.

Text of message "Sid is doing 4 to 5, so if you'll do 3 to 4, I can manage OK. Will pay you OT. See you tomorrow re signing "A" Bk. Here is pcd you said you'd like." So it all makes sense it was a work collegue/supervisor.
