What a fabulous picture care of the Facebook Page, Cheam in Pictures

Cheam Working Mens Institute, Malden Road, Cheam.

Lord Methuen opens the new Rifle Range at Malden Road Cheam,  old postcard posted 24th July 1907.

I am sure this is the 1st Cheam Scout Hut, Malden Rd, Cheam.

The St Dunstan’s Institute, once the home of the Cheam Working Mens Club and built next to the Fire Brigade’s stables in Malden Road.

Could the Rifle Range have been where the British Legion is in Mickleham Gardens, behind 1st Cheam Scout Hut?

I then googled Lord Methuen.  Assuming it was the 3rd Baron Methuen who opened the rifle range, he sounds as if he has a very interesting Military Career.
