From the Maurice Blunden Archive

Maurice Blunden writes -

"Glad to see that you have printed the photo of the rugby 1st X1 1936 - 37 whose captain was my brother.

Mickey Sellars and Stan Blake are to my knowledge still going strong and they may be able to help identify some of the faces.

Maurice Blunden"
