Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Adam 'Plum' Meredith (1913-1976) was a British professional bridge player. His origin was in County Down, Ireland. He was a key member of the British team which won the Bermuda Bowl in 1955. He won the European Championship in 1949 and 1954, and also played in 1955, 1957 and 1959. He won the Gold Cup five times, and the Master Pairs in 1960. Little is known of Plum's early life, except that he did have a good school education. As a man, he was fearlessly honest. Long before World War II he was a convinced pacifist. Although unfit for military service in WWII, he declined to plead ill-health, and registered as a conscientious objector: he felt it would not be honest to put secondary reasons forward. Instead, he was allocated work as an ambulance driver in London, and also an ARP warden during the blitz.show more
