Dulwich Hamlet FC tour of Holland/Germany 1912

According to the Hamlet Historian Jack McInroy -

At the start of the Easter holiday weekend of 1913, the Dulwich Hamlet football team set off for a short continental tour. This was nothing new, in fact it had become customary over the previous five seasons – four tours to the Netherlands and one to Germany.

The team included
Coleman, Clegg, Wight, Popple, Carson, Hegazi, Clarkson and Green played in all three matches. Knight, Smart, Barker and Lawrence played in two. Hagger played in one.

Hussein Hegazi was Dulwich Hamlet's, Egyptian inside right,

Hussein Hegazi (14 September 1891 – 8 October 1961) was the first African player to play competitively in England (Dulwich Hamlet from 1911-1914 and once for Fulham in 1911)

Supporters will probably know of the Football Association ruling re stoppage of games. ONLY in the event of enemy aircraft overhead will play be stopped. Entrances each end of the enclosure facing the playing pitch

And why would the date be "Dulwich Hamlet FC V Walton On Thames (Circa December 1945" as the War was over by then, thus there would not have been air raids...

Thank you...we don't all time to trawl the internet, never mind look on Ebay, so it's good to find out where these all originate from. Even more so when it comes to newspaper articles.

With regard to the 1945 thing, yes it might have come direct from a seller's quote on Ebay...but I am sure you knew it was inaccurate, so it's comes across as annoying (in my view) for you to repeat the error on here, without mentioning that it is clearly wrong.
