football 05 1921 -
Married v. Single, 1921. The 1920s were years when sport features strongly in the life of Hungerford. Teams and matches were arranged with almost every combination imaginable. This photograph shows the teams taking part in the annual Football Club match between the married and single men. The teams are posed in front of what became the cricket pavilion – which is the old G.W.R. Savernake station re-used! Good classic G.W.R. style. A later cricket pavilion (which burnt down in 1963) was made from re-cycled packing cases that were used to transport the Waco gliders from the U.S.A. during the Second World War.
