2nd Battalion The Royal Dublin Fusiliers' Tug-of-War Team, 1914
The British Army favoured the tug-of war as an ideal way of building up physical strength while simultaneously fostering co-operation and teamwork. In 1912 and 1914 the battalion won the Chatham and District 110-Stone Bronze Medal Competition. 1914 was a particularly successful season as they were also semi-finalists at the Amateur Athletics Association (AAA) Championships at Stamford Bridge, London.
