We were founded on 1st April 1974 by Ray Thornton, ex-JM of Singapore H3 and founder also of Commando Forces H3 (1969 – the very first hash in the UK but which now no longer exists so this makes Bicester the oldest weekly running hash in the UK). Ray, after he left Bicester, also went on to found Donnington, Aldershot and Looe & Liskeard H3s. (And prior to returning to the UK he had founded the second hash, but first major one,in Europe – the Dhekelia H3 in Cyprus in 1967.)
This website has been on the internet since September 1995.
|Our Family Tree: We now have seven entirely separate local offshoots (below left):|
In addition Bicester H3 members have founded the following hash chapters further afield – see right hand table.
|Note: Tumbling Bill of Kuala Lumpur H3 has constructed a family tree of all the hashes in the world founded since 1938.|
