The Glory Days
Football has a long history, and some of it is tied up with war.
In 1914, when the First World War broke out, football was the
most popular national sport, especially with young men just the
right age to fight for their country. Entire football teams
joined up to fight together, and some died together too.
Many footballers joined up in the Second World War too, and many
lost thier lives.
This site tells some of their stories and looks at how the
Commonwealth War Graves Commission remembers them by recording
thier details and looking after their graves and memorials
