Football and War

www.cwgc.org

In 1914, when the First World War began, football was the most popular national sport. Many footballers joined up in the Second World War too, and many lost their lives. This site tells some of their stories, and looks at how the Commonwealth War Graves Commission remembers them, by recording their details, and looking after their graves and memorials.
