IN 1988 the first club championship show for PBGVs was held in England. From 1992 the GBGVs joined them with their own “import register” classes. GBGV breed classes came in 1997, then their first Challenge Certificates in 2006. 2012 marked the 25th year of these shows.
THANKS TO photographic records from these events, we can look back at the winners over this milestone quarter century – many of whom, if not champions at the time, went on to attain this honour and are the forebears of UK and overseas BGVs of today.
