Clares Logo - Gold.jpg

What Was the World Like in 1922?

The British Empire begins the year at its largest, ruling over 1 in 4 people. By the end of the year folowing the signing of the Anglo-Irish treaty The Irish Free State was named. 

Britain faced a flu epidemic, claiming 804 victims by the midde of January. 

in 1922 we started to hear the first radio broadcasts purely for entertaiment begin transmission on station 2MT for half an hour on Tuesday evenings, with the Prince of Wales adressing the nation later in the year on new sister station 2LO. It was a big year for entertainment, as the BBC was formed later in the year, introducing a host of new regional stations across the country.

We had a royal wedding, with Princess Mary marrying Viscount Lascelles at Wesminster Abbey.

English archaeologist Howard Carter and his men discover Tutankhamun's tomb in the Valley of the Kings.

We were introduced to the Austin 7 car, which was in circulation until 1939.

In the world of football England footballer Tom Finney was born, Liverpool were the league champions, Bradford City & Manchester United were relegated, and Huddersfield Town won the FA Cup in the last game before the hallowed turf of Wembley was used the next year. Yorkshire win the County Championship, beginning a un of four successive titles, and Wales won the 35th 5 nations tournament.  

Barbara Cartland writes her first novel, Jigsaw and Just William by Richmal Crompton is collected in book form.

Arguably most importantly though, Branston Pickle comes into circulation.

Going into 1941 the club stayed solvent and stable during WW2. The club thankfully doesn't lose many members during in the war effort and many members are still available for selection.

Popular member Leonard Gunner was tragically killed in 1940 and the club flag is placed over his coffin, having played a match a week before his death.
