Photo Above: DKRFC The Whole Club 1947 - 1948

DK has been around in one form or another since 1920, there was a break during WW2, although they didn’t intend to stop. In the minutes of a committee meeting in 1939 one member was quoted as saying:

“In times of war I cannot think of anything better than spending Saturday afternoons playing rugby and keeping fit”

After the war, times were hard, the club got embroiled in discussions with local MP’s and government departments over the lack of clothing coupons to buy kit! They also had to apply to the RFU to buy a ball. But rugby prevailed!

To help get back on track a member of Moseley RFC sent a document out to clubs with some helpful hints on how to play the game.

This document with the piece of paper attached (above) was found in a box in a storage container at DK.

The photo is of the whole club in 1947/48, it’s strange to think that some of the people in this photo could well have held and read this very document!

SOME NOTES ON RUGBY FOOTBALL

Further to this document another one was found dating back to 1938!

It is a plea from the President of the RFU, Major General B A Hill, in 1938 to all players to play fair!
