Leinster Leader 21 November 1936
Kildare men’s distinction in New York Show

It is interesting to see two Kildare members of the sporting world distinguishing themselves in the military ranks at the New York Show, namely Capt. R. G. Fanshawe and Lieut. J. A. Talbot-Ponsonby, members of the English military jumping team who carried off the International Military Perpetual Challenge Trophy and the Brooks Bright Cup and the Individual Military Championship.
 Lieut. J. A. Talbot-Ponsonby is son of Major Talbot-Ponsonby. For many years a popular Master of the Kildare Hounds, and was well known in Kildare hunting life as his father. Capt. R. G. Fanshawe is son of Major-General Sir. E. Fanshawe of Rathmore, the latter the oldest follower of the Kildare Hounds.
