As Hilda Ranscombe's niece I feel the need to make some corrections.
I have just read a book about woman's hockey called Queens of The Ice by Carly Adams.
I appreciate her efforts regarding woman's hockey and the team she featured, that being the Preston Rivulettes of the 1930 era.
Since I am Hilda Ranscombe's niece I feel the need to make some corrections.
I not only have copies of the newspaper articles written at the time of the games and I also have heard stories from both Hilda and Nellie about many things from the beginning of their hockey career such as the day Nellie and Helen Schmuck sat on the curb at the hotel trying to decide if they should go in and talk to Fanny (Bobbie) Rosenfeld.
They did go in and she encouraged them to form a team and they did. It was most of the ball players team they belonged to who became the Preston Rivulettes.
For posterity's sake, I feel that these errata should be corrected.
I'm Hilda & Nell's niece: Elizabeth (Betty) Barnes (nee Ranscombe) of Preston, now Cambridge, Ontario.
