Footballers in War

There's an interesting new addition to the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website concerning the role of footballers during times of war. It's a short 9 minute film sponsored by the Daily Mirror. It includes the story of sixteen Heart of Midlothian players who signed up in 1914, with seven losing their lives in WW1.
