Yes Michael, the facts certainly back the fact the story didn't happen, but to us growing up in the area, with no TV or suchlike and our only outlet being action comics or books ,Tel-El-Kebir was a gripping legend and to know someone who had a connection with it in our midst was a thing of wonder. Then again, lots of things we were taught at school have been proved wrong in the modern age. Personally, I'm sad another part of my growing up has been proved to be a myth, but, interesting stuff Michael, great research.

:oops: :oops: Down in Blackrock we never even queried the name!
We knew it a Telly Kerby (that's how we pronounced it), but, then again Maretimo was (mareattemo).

You have to remember back to the 50's we hardly knew what the map of the world looked like and history was fables of Brian Boru. I was probably 50years old before a friend told me what T.E.K stood for. Could have been Tommy's Elderly Kows for all I knew!!

Getting back to the question of a logo. Logos did not exist 50/60 years ago.
The milkmen from TEK dairy wore brown coats (just like the white ones worn
by medics) they carried no logo, they wore peaked caps with T-E-K just above
the brim.
You see I remember Mr. Supple who was our delivery man for very many
years.

I'm glad to say I find all this fascinating as I lived near the Dairy & played in Suttons Field for over ten years till I moved , The Sutton family lived in a largish house between the Dairy & the shop on the corner . I passed them every day on my way to School in Blackrock , Sorry I'm late catching up , I've just joined . I Can't remember T.E.K with a logo , I watched them many times . Love the war story . Mixer2

Welcome Mixer2, wuu

Hope you enjoy the site and, if you played in Sutton's field you're probably a 'Farmer' if so, I'd love to hear more about your time in the Farm. Also I watched TEK's home games as a boy in the 50's and I remember the shirts were red with white sleeves and collars and as Harjoe said on the white pocket was a red shamrock outline with the letters T E K inside.

Welcome to your second home Mixer2. We all sit around
our screens and read each others stories. We can pretend

SELECT POETRY. TEL-EL-KEBIR.
Our forces were massed in the dead of the night,
Each man carried nought but was needful in fight,
Accoutred and ready, they sought for re pose:
Two hours were thus spent, when they silently rose.
No bugle notes rang on tihe calm cloudless air.
A whisper was passed for the march to pre pare:
In silence they moved o'er the dark track less sand,
Took their course by the stars, and with compass in hand
Each regimentFEI.T forthe neighbouring line,
And kept its position without sound or sign. sign.
Thus weird-like the army still held on its way,
But halted awhile for the break of the day.
The order was passed, " Let none fire a shot,
Until at the trenches the first man has got;
Then rush with a cheer, and the bayonet wield,
The Islamite horde mustthenspeedily yield."
Sir Garnet's design was a consummate plan ; -
His soldiers hie knew hIe could trust to a man;
And thus when the muttered command passed around,
His heroes dashed forward with joy at the sound.
Though smet with a showerof bulletslike hail,
No obstacle could o'er their ardour prevail;
They leant o'er the ditches and swarmed up the slope,
Dropped inside the works with the rebels to cope.
No race of the East but must stagger and reel
When charged hand to hand with the British I cold steel.
Few minutes sufficed from the first to tlhe rush
The strength of proud Arabi's legions to crush. ersslsl.
The Highland Brigade bore the brunt of the fray;
Their ranks were more thinned than tihe rest on that day;
While the cavalry srwept o'er the miass in retreat.
And cut down their hundreds the rout to complete.
The Indian contingent went straight on ahead,
Till Tantah's old thoroughlfares rang to their tread.
The campaign was won; and ere next sun had set,
In Cairo the victors triumphantly met.
All arms or the service have valiantly fought,
Fresh laurels to history's pages arC brought;
Enshrined on our flag a new name shall appear
Recalling the vict'ry at Tel-el-Kebir,

Leith, November, 1882, .

Fatal...you have me going through the census returns. I love trying to piece together families. One of the servants was called Noblett. In the 30's my mother who lived in Stradbrook was pally with Nobletts so they must have settled and married in the area.

Interesting in the 1901 census while Suttons lived at Newtown Park Ave there was a family Jolley living at number1. That was the name of the family who donated the land at the soldiers and sailors field on Monkstown Ave. Might have been a connection.


Hey Rocker,

Just ressurecting this following some comments on Facebook. Are there any sources on the (wonderfully named) Jolley family who are credited with donating the Sailors and Soldiers field?

Om Facebook, it is suggested it was left to "children for playing" but that this purpose might have been stretched to include allotments and adult soccer pitches. (& cider parties)

Micheál,

It was Holla who found the reference to the Jolley Family on Monkstown Farm topic


while reading" a great little book"I came across a little info on this field,it was donated by the Jolley family to the British authorities for injured soldiers and sailors to exercise in before returning to full health (nearby monkstown house and Duneden house were convalescent hospitals during the war years)[/quote]
