Who’s for the Game?’ tells the story of the men from four prominent Birmingham sports clubs who lost their lives in the First World War. The four memorials to the men are within a mile of each other and for a time three of them were located at Moseley Ashfield Cricket Club. The story of the men is peppered across almost all the battle fronts of the War and only the navy is not represented. Jessie Pope’s poem, which gives the book its title, is now seen as jingoistic but these men were anything but blinded by propaganda. They died as they played, giving everything for their team. WE WILL REMEMBER THEM.
