    "Miss Pentony" is Eithne Pentony.

    "Mrs Blake" seems likely to be Fanny Blake, against whom Miss Pentony certainly played in the 1930s, but I can find no photo of Blake to confirm that).

    "CU one of the players - possibly the winner" - yes, that's Eithne Pentony.

    "Mrs Blake" is Miss Fannie Blake - she was my father's cousin. I have photographs of her at that age playing serious golf.

    Could you ask H_is_me who commented on 16th June 2016 to contact me. The event where Miss Fannie Blake (her father's cousin) was The Irish Ladies' Championship which took place at Royal County Down Golf Club in Newcastle, County Down (not Newcastle-upon-Tyne) in 1933. The footage is of the final of the championship. I am one of the archivists at this golf club and very keen to have information on players who achieved this level of success in the major golf events which we've hosted in the past. I'm happy for my contact details to be supplied.
