The first Malcolm Club was opened by Lady Tedder in Algiers during 1943.  They soon increased in number with clubs in locations all over the world. They were named after a gallant young Scottish Wing Commander, Hugh Malcolm of Broughy Ferry, Dundee, who had been awarded a posthumous V.C. for operations over Tunis.  The clubs provided not only food but also books, wireless, comforts and a cheery atmosphere in which aircrews could relax.  Airmen regarded these clubs as their own. Rare to find. Stock code U21738.
