Gone But Not Forgotten

Saturday March 21, 1914: Scotland line up against England in Edinburgh. England won the closely fought match 16-15, but a very different conflict was about to engulf Europe…

Both captains, a number of forwards and the majority of the backs who competed in this particular match never returned from the devastation of World War I. An incredible number of international rugby players died in both world wars and 'Gone But Not Forgotten' is our tribute to them all.

'Gone But Not Forgotten' was curated with the invaluable help and support of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.
