Market Lavington Museum

Lodge Meat Buffet


This image arrived in the recent collection of photos mostly connected with the Cooper family of Market Lavington.

But first we are looking at the message on the back of the photo.

Believed to be a meeting of the RAOB

This clearly says ‘Lodge meat buffet Tuesday’.

We think this refers to the Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffaloes who met at the former pub, The Kings Arms. What we do not know is whether the photo of three men has anything to do with that message.

This is one of our regular appeals for help. Can anybody name the men? It’s possible that the man on the right is sitting on the balustrade we now have in the museum. That man is also holding a very cute kitten.

We look forward to hearing from you.
