British Consols Home Rink

British Consol's Home Rink, Glace Bay, N.S.

The British Consols were a Jr. team based out of Glace Bay, NS. The team was sponsored by the cigarette company British Consols, after brothers Don and Del MacDonald saw a sky banner in Montreal and decided to address a personal letter to the owner (W.C MacDonald) asking for sponsorship. Eventually they got a response saying that W.C MacDonald had died 25 years prior, but regardless the company would sponsor the team.

They played in 1933-34 and 1934-35.
