Raised in December 1914, the battalion was at the forefront of football’s contribution to the war effort during the Great War and fought in some of its bloodiest engagements. Recruitment was so popular that a second Football Battalion was formed in May 1915 and both units proved their worth on the battlefields of France and Flanders.
