In order to commemorate the inauguratiom of the world's grain championships at the Royal Fair, the provinces known for grain-growing sent a gift - 50 goldeye fish! These rare fish were flown in by helicopter for the opening day dinner. Pictured is W.A. Dryden with R.L. Avey (cargo manager), J.A. Northey (1947-48 President of RAWF), and pilot D.D. Viney.
