SALUTES 100TH ANNIVERSARY OF WW1
WITH 2017 CALENDAR
RUGBY FOR HEROES WW1 2017 calendar – pre-orders being taken now.
Proceeds from the calendar will support military personnel making the transition into civilian life.
With this marking the 100th anniversary of the beginning of World War One, Rugby for Heroes is honouring those that were lost in the Great War whilst fighting for the British Armed Forces.
The RFU called upon its members aged between 19 and 35 to enlist for the formation of a rugby players’ battalion to stand in solidarity with those enlisted in the British Army. Whilst the idea was not feasible, the War Office did suggest that companies of rugby players (around 120) could enlist together in certain Regiments of which many did fighting for Queen & Country, such was their patriotism.
