British Pathe newsreel footage of rowing

We did a search for rowing and sculling.

      Jack – much appreciate your rapid response. Our readers really liked this post. One reader, Duncan Holland, tells us he wrote to you separately advising the 1914 clip is actually 1918/19 and is the New Zealand “Victory Games” crew practicing in London after WW1. Would be good to get that correctly attributed.
