Mr Philip David from California, who lived in Cox Town in the 70s, “Two great Pigeon Racers from Stephens Road were very instrumental in getting the club off the ground. One was Dellamott, he had a great a great loft in the back of his house and had some very fine pigeons. The other person was Peter Pereira, he started with few Japanese blues which he got from Kevin Stephens. They used to race among ourselves much before the club started. There were many pigeon fanciers around the cantonment, Bangalore area during the 70s who lent their shoulder to kick start the club. Some of them were Dellamott, Robinson, Pereira, Willie and Stephens.”
