Lists and addresses of the members involved are included, as are menu cards for reunions, secretary reports and letters detailing reunions, and photographs show members of the association often in reunion dinners, which indicates the social nature of the association. Details of how the outbreak of the Second World War affected the Association are seen through the postponement of the 21st reunion because of the outbreak, and the letter of the pilgrimage to France in 1939. A newspaper article and photograph records the final meeting, marking the end of the association.
