Worke, Harold  – by B. Parlby

Harold Worke came to Canada from Channel Islands about in the first decade of the 1900’s.  He married Margaret Turnbull, a sister of William and Henry Turnbull and they had one son, Leslie.  Mrs. Worke had a very beautiful singing voice and used to take part in the entertainments so popular in those days.

Harold Worke was one of the group of young Englishmen who played with the Alix Polo  team before World War I.  His horse, however, required considerable urging, and Worke would chivy his mount down the field with a continual chant of, “Giddap, giddap, giddap, giddap!”
