If I could work out how to string together text and pictures I could have sent the whole of this particular document and other stuff but HOPC doesn't seem to accept e.g. Word documents which would otherwise do the trick.
As an aside I was reading Dannyboy's article on pugilist Peter Jackson and his submission seems to have found a way of stringing together quite a lengthy article.
In a similar vein I have quite a lot of old stuff on Jem Mace but submitting it piecemeal in lots of disjointed 2 X 0.99 Mb is too daunting.
Post questions concerning the History of Physical Culture and we will try our best to answer them for you.
