  1. 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.
