Description

North West England/Sale/Manchester Univ. Rugby Items, WW2 (3): Fascinating in the war years context, a 1940 Manchester University RFC glossy Dinner Menu with good cartoons of the ‘Old Crocks’ v ‘The Club’, copiously autographed and with a sparse wartime menu: tho’ a small stain shows they had gravy! Also a small hand-penned Menu and Toast List for the 1st Annual Dinner of ‘The Red Lion Club’, Jan. 1943, some of the same signatories, with a perhaps more pleasing menu; and a very clean Sale v Manchester Univ. programme for Nov 30th 1940. Fixtures were comparatively sparse, local and featured several military opponents, but show that some play still went on. G/VG. (3)
