    "Miss Pentony" is Eithne Pentony.

    "Mrs Blake" seems likely to be Fanny Blake, against whom Miss Pentony certainly played in the 1930s, but I can find no photo of Blake to confirm that).

    "CU one of the players - possibly the winner" - yes, that's Eithne Pentony.

    \"Mrs Blake\" is Miss Fannie Blake - she was my father\'s cousin. I have photographs of her at that age playing serious golf.
