Two large original photographs, one of the Eton XI of 1914 and one of the combined Eton and Winchester XIs, mounted back to back on a page from a large photograph album. The Eton team included CJ Hambro, F Anson, OWH Leese (12th man), FC Letts, CS Vane-Tempest, RAC Foster, FJL Johnstone, GS Rawstorne, TEG Nugent, TSD'A Hankey, BFF Christy and RD Crossman. The Winchester team included Gilbert Ashton, Wells-Cole and Gregson. The match, played at Ridding Field on June 26-27, 1914, was drawn. Within 4 years at least 8 of these young men from both schools had died on the Western Front.
Each photograph is 24 x 30cm, with mounts being larger. Very good condition.
