Re: YOUMA

Hello

I discovered this forum quite by accident...

My Great Grandfather, Andrew Rush was the inventor of the Youma Malt Loaf!

Although sadly I can provide no proof that this is the case, All of the correspondence I have refers to 'the loaf', the name 'Youma' misspelled as 'yuma' appears only on a hand written note written by my father.

The loaf was 'invented' for a competition being run by 'The Hovis-Bread Flour Co Ltd' in late 1913.

My Great Grandfather who was a master baker in the employ of Young Brothers, Bakers, Edinburgh, was the winner.

His prize was an 'American Waltham Rolled Gold Watch and Chain'.

The watch was bequeathed to the next person in the family line who bore the name 'Andrew', that turned out to be me.

I could probably post a copy of the letter to the forum if anyone shows interest, I would very much like to have higher quality images of the 'Youma Book of Facts' posted earlier in this thread if anyone has them.
