Inter Police Football Match Paris 1927

The Sporting Times dated 11th June 1927 carries an amusing tale of a football match between the French and British police in Paris.

" My wife went to a football match between the French and English Police in Paris. It was a showery afternoon, and when it was all over (we won) our Police band played 'God save the King' and the Marsellaise. Then, as it was raining, all the French players started to leave the field, when our men crowded together, held up their arms and sang the 'AOFB anthem'. The French, not knowing what it was all about, stood stock still at the salute until our men had finished."
