Great Western Combination League tables Can't Post or Reply Privately

Does anyone have (or know where I can find) final league tables for the Great Western Combination for season 1946/7, 1947/8 and 1948/9?

Many thanks.

If it is of interest I attended the Southern Counties Cup final tonight and had a look at the trophy and it has been "inherited" from the Great Western Combination League -

Hallmarked trophy and lid with "newly" added base (in 1974) which is not hallmarked. Presumably the old one with the G.W.C. history of winners on it was replaced.
Both the trophy and lid are ornamentally patterned.

4" base, 8" trophy, 5" lid

Engraved on the trophy - The Steve Loosen Trophy / Great Western Combination League / First Presented / Season 1946-47 / To Be Competed For Annually

On the base - On Trust From / The Berks & Bucks / Football Association

Then the winners in five columns (1974-75 to 1983-84, 1984-85 to 1993-94, note 1994-95 is not engraved with the date nor the winners, 1995-96 to 2004-05, 2005-06 to 2014-15, 2015-16 to 2017-18)

Note 2000-01 is engraved with "No Competition"
and 2004-05 has the date but no name beside it

It was shared in 2006

The winners have been -
Leicestershire & Rutland 1975, 1982
Essex 1976, 1981, 1987, 1993, 1999, 2002, 2004, 2006 (shared)
Berks & Bucks 1977, 1979
Hertfordshire 1978
Sussex 1980, 1990, 2011
Hampshire 1983, 1991, 1994
London 1984, 1988, 1992, 2000, 2003
Middlesex 1985, 1986, 1997, 1998
Bedfordshire 1989, 1996
Missing 1995, 2001 (no competition), 2005
Amateur Football Alliance 2006 (shared), 2007, 2009, 2016
Army 2008, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2007, 2018 (and now 2019)
Royal Navy 2014, 2015

I was searching for the whereabouts of that trophy in 2012!

Attached (I hope!) is a photo of Stephen Loosen with the trophy that he presented.

Thank you, looks like he was born Philip Stephen Loosen in 1887 (Poplar Reg. Dist.), married Brentford 1911. Had son Stanley 1912 Brentford. Stanley married Maidenhead 1943.
Stephen re-married 1954 Worthing but died 1955 Hove.

I don't suppose you managed to snap a picture of the trophy did you?
